PA government: Israel is "targeting the identity, heritage, and faith of the Palestinians in Jerusalem," which will "ignite a religious war"

Headline: “The [PA] government: The Israeli steps in Jerusalem in the past and future are invalid”
     “[PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah held the government of Israel – as the occupying power – fully responsible for the harm to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque…
During the weekly government meeting led by him, which was held yesterday [July 18, 2017] in Ramallah, the prime minister warned against the consequences of the occupation government’s steps in Jerusalem, which began last Friday [July 14, 2017] with the closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque (the Temple Mount was closed for two days and afterwards metal detectors were placed at the entrances to the site in response to a terror attack there in which 2 were murdered; see note below –Ed.)…
[The PA government] emphasized that what is happening constitutes blatant aggression and an Israeli plan that is targeting the identity, heritage, and faith of the Palestinians in Jerusalem, and their presence in the occupied holy city – something that is only liable to intensify the tensions in Jerusalem in particular and in the region in general, to lead to an explosion of the situation, and to ignite a religious war for whose disastrous consequences the government of Israel will be fully responsible.”
