PA minister: “Settlers” aiming to “blow up the situation in Jerusalem”

Official PA TV newsreader: “[PA] Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Fadi Al-Hadmi says that the occupation authorities and the settlers are escalating their violations in occupied East Jerusalem on the eve of the blessed [Muslim fasting] month of Ramadan. Al-Hadmi warned against the attempts that the settlers are leading under the auspices of the occupation police to blow up the situation in Jerusalem… The occupation authorities have announced they are letting the settlers invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the month of Ramadan.”

The PA and its leaders misrepresent all of the Temple Mount as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, they vilify any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." 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.
