Even though Israel today is removing the metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount, which were placed following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered, Abbas' Fatah Movement is still protesting against Israel's security measures and vowing to "thwart the Zionists' plans" with "our blood":

[Official Fatah Facebook page, July 25, 2017]Palestinian Media Watch has reported that during the last two weeks, PA and Fatah leaders have encouraged Palestinian riots, "escalation," and "rage" in Jerusalem. Israel placed metal detectors and security cameras at the entrances to the Temple Mount following the terror attack on July 14, 2017, when three terrorists shot from the Temple Mount and murdered 2 Israeli border policemen. While ignoring Israel's reason for installing these security measures to prevent future attacks on the holy site, PA and Fatah leaders have presented this step as a "violation," claiming it is "a step on the way to establishing the alleged Temple."
This claim plays on the fears Palestinian leaders continuously are trying to sow among Palestinians that "the Al-Aqsa Mosque is in danger" of being destroyed by Israel.
"The three no's" in Fatah's post above echo three other no's - those of the Arab League's 1967 Khartoum Resolution: No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel. These are positions that PMW has demonstrated are promoted by the PA unceasingly.
