Jordan : Israel reversal of unacceptable measures on al-Aqsa, step to calm in region

Muslims end boycott at Jerusalem holy site after security dropped

By evening all restrictions were lifted and Palestinians of all ages were allowed into the mosque compound, Israeli and Palestinian sources said.

"Everyone must understand that the Palestinians will never let anyone dirty our al-Aqsa Mosque", said Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh in an emailed statement.

The measures were met with uproar by Palestinians and Muslims across the world, who viewed it as an Israeli attempt to exert more control over the politically sensitive site.

Muslims had refused to enter the compound and prayed in the streets outside after Israel installed the new security measures.

Abdel Azim Salhab of the Waqf, Jordan's religious body that administers the site, has urged imams to close other Jerusalem mosques on Friday so worshippers will pray only at al Aqsa.

Outside, clashes in one area erupted when a group of policemen walked in the middle of a crowd.

Violence also broke out in the West Bank cities of Qalqilya, Nablus, Hebron, Tulkarm, Ramallah and the outskirts of Bethlehem.

Meanwhile, the Arab League has urged Israeli authorities from taking any such steps in future that could fuel religious tensions in the region.

The measures, which included metal detectors, have since been removed.

"I call on the occupying state to learn the lessons of this crisis and the message it carries", he added.

Following days of demonstrations and clashes, Israel started to remove the barriers, scaffoldings, high-tech cameras and metal detectors from at least one of the gates to the compound on Wednesday. Hours later the jubilation turned to anger as worshippers faced assault by rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades within the boundaries of what was supposed to be their sanctuary.

Turkey's Erdogan urges all Muslims to "visit" and "protect" Jerusalem. "The network moreover reiterates that it will continue covering the news and events of the occupied Palestinian territories, and elsewhere, both professionally and objectively".

Television footage showed some brief confrontations involving a group of Palestinians, a number of them throwing bottles, and police dispersing them with stun grenades.
