The PA government's mention of recent Israeli steps in Jerusalem refers to Israeli security measures at the Temple Mount following an attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered - see note below. On July 24, 2017, Israel started to remove the metal detectors and security cameras from the site, but the PA continued to demand all measures including inspection at the entrances be removed, before declaring on July 27, 2017 that all measures were removed.
