TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The latest round of violence erupted on Tuesday as Israeli troops resorted to force in order to disperse Palestinians demonstrating against the Tel Aviv regime’s restrictive measures at the compound.
According to local reports, several reporters and a young child were among those injured.
On Tuesday morning, Israeli authorities removed metal detectors installed at the Bab al-Asbat and Bab al-Nather entrances of al-Aqsa Mosque compound, but kept surveillance cameras to monitor Muslim worshipers.
Palestinian officials have rejected Israel’s moves in the occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds, saying Tel Aviv should lift all restrictions on the compound.
Israeli authorities installed metal detectors, turnstiles, and additional security cameras in the compound following a deadly shooting attack more than a week ago.
Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has stressed that security coordination with the Tel Aviv regime will continue to be halted despite Israel’s removal of the metal detectors.
“All new Israeli measures put in place since July 14 must be removed so things can go back to normal in Jerusalem and we can resume our work regarding bilateral relations,” he said.
Coordination meetings between Israeli and Palestinian officials was initially halted on Sunday over Israel’s continuation of the restrictive measures.
