Clashes erupt over Israel security measures in al-Aqsa
New Israeli security measures at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied East Jerusalem have caused a confrontation between Israeli police and dozens of Muslim worshippers.
For Muslims, the installation of metal detectors at the compound’s entrance following a deadly shootout on Friday represents an act of Israeli sovereignty.
Many decided to pray outside the mosque compound in protest, but were pushed away by the Israeli authorities.
