Palestinians return to holy site


PV International Desk : Palestinians have returned to a key holy site in Jerusalem for the first time in two weeks after Israel removed controversial security apparatus, BBC.

Worshippers flocked to the compound after Muslim leaders lifted a two-week boycott following Israel’s reversal.

The measures were introduced by Israel after the killing of two Israeli policemen nearby.

The last pieces were removed on Thursday after days of violence in which seven people were killed.

Palestinians had fiercely objected to the new security set-up, seeing it as an Israeli attempt to exert control over the Old City complex known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as the Temple Mount.
