PA Mufti accuses Israel of acting to build “the alleged Temple” over Al-Aqsa Mosque

“The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein warned of the occupation authorities’ intention to allow settlers and foreign tourists to break into the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the Cotton Merchants’ Gate… The Mufti said that this attack is an integral part of the series of daily attacks whose purpose is to tighten control on the Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the alleged Temple in its place.”
From WAFA, official PA news agency

Note: The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "attack." However, all visitors are subject to rigorous checks by Israeli security personnel before being granted access to the Temple Mount.
