Arab world decries Israel's Al-Aqsa restrictions

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Arab world is decrying Israel’s new restrictions on the holy site of Al-Aqsa Mosque imposed after a deadly gun battle last week.

Al-Aqsa Mosque was closed to worship last weekend following a Friday shootout between Palestinians and Israeli police that left five people dead. Israel subsequently placed metal detectors on doors and imposed restrictions on the entrance of Muslims, including banning men under age 50 from entering the mosque or Jerusalem’s Old City.

Governments and politicians from across the Arab world condemned Israel and urged Israel to immediately abandon its course of action.
