Newspaper Review: Yeshiva Calls on Settlers to Enter al-Aqsa Site

RAMALLAH, September 20, 2015 (WAFA) – The three Palestinian Arabic dailies Sunday focused on calls made by a yeshiva school for Jewish settlers to take part in a large-scale entry to al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem, a move that will ultimately spark intense clashes between the Israeli police, settlers and Palestinian worshipers.

Meanwhile, al-Hayat al-Jadida said Egyptian President Abdul-Fattah el-Sisi warned against the consequences of the daily Israeli violations in al-Aqsa Mosque.

On a different subject, al-Ayyam said the Israeli government is set to approve on Sunday an act that allows the Israeli police to use live ammunition against “stone-throwers” in Jerusalem.

Al-Quds said Israeli police also warned to detain stone throwers in the aftermath of recent Israeliescalation in al-Aqsa Mosque and the entire city.

Al-Ayyam said Israeli security and military sources warned against an imminent outbreak in the situation in the occupied West Bank, in light of the situation in Jerusalem.

It reported that dozens of Palestinian activists suffocated by teargas used by the Israeli army and police during confrontations on Saturday in the West Bank districts of Jenin and Qalqilia as well as Jerusalem.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted a report by the Israeli Ynet news, saying that the Jerusalem “children of stones” – in reference for youth and children who throw stones at Israeli police at times of clashes – are not afraid of the penalties imposed against them by the Israeli government.

Al-Ayyam said a Palestinian was injured in an Israeli airstrike which targeted a location in Jabalia refugee camp on Saturday.
