PA calls for joint radio and TV broadcasts to show “blood, destruction, and Israeli rampaging at the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Information: Urgent call in late broadcast...”
“In view of the savage attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the [PA] Ministry of Information called urgently to the television and radio stations to combine their broadcasts tomorrow [July 27, 2015], from 10:00 a.m. till 12:00 p.m., and listen to the voice of their conscience by taking a national stand to expose the attacks from all over taking place against Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, through the use of organized government terror. The ministry called for the media and various internet sites to participate in the national campaign to protect the sites holy to Christianity and Islam, and to show the pictures of blood, destruction, and Israeli rampaging at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to bring to the attention of free people throughout the world the repeated invasions by settlers under the occupation army’s protection ... He emphasized that two hours of facts and numbers, alongside interviews with consuls of sisterly and friendly countries, jurists, [representatives of] international movements of solidarity with our people, Al-Aqsa Mosque Ribat fighters (i.e., Murabitin - those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic), and experts on [the Al-Aqsa Mosque], will help focus attention on the flower of cities (i.e., Jerusalem), which has had enough of the racist occupation which doesn’t attach any importance to the holy places and the houses of Allah.”

Note: On July 26, 2015, Tisha B’Av, Israeli police entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque after Arab youth armed with rocks and fireworks blockaded themselves within the Mosque in order to confront police and disturb the visits of Jews to the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av (see note below). There were confrontations and the police had to break in to the mosque in order to take control and restore peace.
Tisha B’Av is a Jewish day of mourning, commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem (586 BCE and 70 CE) and the forced exile of all Jews from the land of Israel.
The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "attack."
