Israel Bars Non-Muslim Prayer at Holy site During Holiday

Thursday, 24 September 2015 09:19 AM EDT

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police on Thursday barred all non-Muslims from entering a sensitive Jerusalem site during a major Muslim holiday.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police decided to allow unrestricted Muslim prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the Eid al-Adha celebrations and to bar all others from entering.

The site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, has been a flashpoint for violence in recent days.

Palestinians accuse Israel of restricting some access to the mosque while Jewish worshippers visited the site.

Tensions boiled over last week on the eve of the Jewish new year when Palestinians barricaded themselves inside the mosque and threw rocks and firecrackers at police. An Israeli man was also died in Jerusalem after Palestinians pelted his car with rocks.
