RAMALLAH - 21 July 2017: Israeli occupation on Friday made wide-scale arrests of Fatah Movement leaders and al Quds activists after storming their homes in the occupied al Quds city.
Tension mounts in al Quds as the Israeli cabinet decided to keep the electronic gates it installed last week at some gates of al Aqsa mosque.
While Palestinians agreed on not to enter the holy site through these gates, the occupation police barred worshipers under 50 years to enter the old town and al Aqsa.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs reaffirmed that it will not accept the occupation policy to use the electronic gates, it insisted that Friday prayers will be held before these gates.
