PFLP: Jerusalem Attack Achievement of Palestinian Resistance

Gaza's terrorist Hamas rulers on Saturday called on Palestinians to attack Israeli forces in Yerushalayim after the Har Habayis was closed following a terrorist attack there.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called for "zero tolerance for terrorism" after an attack on a Jerusalem shrine Friday by three Palestinians that killed two Israeli police officers.

Three people were wounded in the attack, two of them critically, police said.

The closure stopped Muslims gathering there for Friday prayers, drawing a call for resistance from Palestinian leaders.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police tracked down the 34-year-old suspect in a joint operation with the military.

According to police, the attackers suddenly started to shoot at Lion's gate of the Old city, and then tried to escape on the Temple mount.

The compound is the holiest site in Judaism and the third-holiest in Islam.


Since the closure, Israeli authorities have been under internal and worldwide pressure to reopen Temple Mount, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being forced to assure US President Donald Trump and Palestinian authorities that "the status quo will be preserved".

The ministry said Malaysia demanded that Israel immediately re-open the Al-Aqsa Mosque to Muslim worshippers and cease any action that would change the status quo of the Islamic holy site.

Muslims claim that Israel will use such incidents to "Judaize" the Temple Mount.

Israel took the highly unusual decision of closing the Al-Aqsa mosque compound for Friday prayers, triggering anger from Muslims and Jordan, the holy site's custodian. The incident left the three dead, along with two Israeli occupation forces. A few of the attacks had been carried out by Arab Israeli citizens.

"The attack forced the government of Israel to temporarily close the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif to conduct its investigation". Tens of thousands of faithful typically pray at a major shrine in the Old City, revered by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and by Jews as the Temple Mount.

The new step led to bigger disputes and a war on "the sovereignty of the mosque", leading to further confrontations near one of the gates, and leaving several Palestinians injured.
