Israel removes metal detectors from al-Aqsa compound

"The son of the owner attacked the Israeli diplomat and injured him", the statement said.

An acrimonious session of Jordan's parliament was cut short after lawmakers walked out in protest over the government's handling of a deadly shooting at the Israeli Embassy in the kingdom.

Following the conversation, the Israeli Embassy staff, including the security guard who had killed two Jordanians after being attacked by one with a screwdriver, returned to Israel from their base in Jordan.

Monday's report in Hala Akhbar says Jordan wants to investigate the shooter and if Israel refuses to allow that, it will take "diplomatic measures".

The top decision-making forum met overnight and into early Monday to discuss the latest developments, including an incident in which a security guard at the country's embassy in Jordan opened fire, killing two Jordanians, after being attacked.

The diplomatic crisis with Jordan over the embassy shooting lent more urgency to finding a solution. It says: 'We are calling for churches around the world to pray for you these days and for a just peace for Jerusalem.

Sheikh Najeh Bakirat, director of al-Aqsa Mosque, said on Tuesday that the move does not fulfil the demands of the Muslim worshippers as the security cameras remain.

Ikrema Sabri, the head of the Supreme Islamic Committee in the city, said such a review might be completed later on Tuesday.

Jordan is the Muslim custodian of the site which is also holy to Jews.

"Our position is that for now, nobody should enter", he told The Associated Press.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet voted to remove the metal detector gates after a meeting lasting several hours convening for a second time on Monday.

According to ABC News, the security guard let the Jordanian man, who was identified as a 17-year-old of Palestinian origin, into the compound on the pretense of doing furniture repairs in a residential building within the embassy.

He acknowledged that as a member of the Cabinet he bore "collective responsibility" for the initial decision.

He told Israel's Army Radio on Tuesday that the removal marks a "fixing of a previous mistake". Many have refused to go through the metal detectors and there have been violent protests.

Israel's move triggered Muslim protests and claims that it's trying to expand its role at the site, which is also holy to Jews.

The spike in tensions and the deaths of three Israelis and four Palestinians in violence on Friday and Saturday have triggered global alarm and prompted the United Nations Security Council to convene a meeting to seek ways of calming the situation. "Likening the Muslims who come for worship to terrorists is a great eclipse of reason", Erdoğan said in a news conference at Ankara's Esenboğa Airport after returning from a two-day visit to the Gulf region. The Palestinian president had announced last week that he was suspending all ties with Israel, including security coordination between his forces and Israeli troops in the West Bank, until the metal detectors are removed.

The religious body had accused Israel of taking control over the ultra-sensitive compound and changing the status quo when the metal detectors were installed in the wake of the July 14 terror attack at the site in which two Israeli police officers were killed.
