PA PM warns against “dangers” of settlers’ “invasions” of the Temple Mount, which may lead to “a religious conflict”
“[PA] Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh held the government of Israel responsible for the settlers’ recurring invasions of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas…
He warned against the dangers in continuing these actions and against turning the conflict into a religious conflict.”
The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion” or a "break-in." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
