Israel to reopen Al-Aqsa mosque after deadly attack

"We are closely watching the development and hold Israel completely responsible for what is taking place at al-Aqsa", he warned.

We affirm our solidarity with the people of Palestine and call upon the worldwide community to condemn these acts and take immediate action to end the illegal clampdown of the sacred Al Aqsa mosque and its compound.

The incident comes a day after Israeli forces illegally shut down Islam's third holiest site, the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem's Old City, following an attack before the holy Friday prayers for Muslims. It also called for immediate opening of Al Aqsa Mosque to worshippers.

Jordanian MP Kais Zayadin, rapporteur of the Foreign Affairs Committee in Parliament, wrote a post on social media calling on the worldwide community to set punishments for Israel, as it has "executed unarmed Palestinian citizens, without a trial".

Israeli cancelled Friday prayers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque after three Palestinians and two Israeli police officers were killed in a gun battle at the mosque compound.

Journalist Adel Yaseen posted on his Facebook account that the shooting reveals several dynamics at play in the current phase of the Palestinian struggle.

Hamas described the closure of the site - known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount - in a statement as a "religious war" and Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum called on the Palestinian "uprising" to target the Israeli army and West Bank settlers.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation also issued a statement on Saturday condemning the closure of the mosque.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Netanyahu spoke by phone on Friday as tensions rose.

Clearly the rightwing terrorist regime at the helm of the so-called government of the Israeli state is led by warmongers who have been killing, destroying and suffocating the indigenous Palestinian population for decades and will use any pretext to physically demolish Al Aqsa with malicious intent in keeping with Zionist goals.

Haram al-Sharif is home to the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.

He added that holy sites would never have been violated like this if many Arab leaders did not consider Tel Aviv as their "gateway" to the White House.
