Israeli occupation police have begun placing new cameras at the Council Gate of Al-Aqsa Mosque to monitor Palestinians’ entry and exit through the Islamic holy site.

Director of Al-Aqsa Academy for Science and Heritage Sheikh Najeh Bkeerat said that Israeli police “are placing the cameras to monitor the movement in and out of Al-Aqsa Mosque and to restrict the movement of Jerusalemites, mainly in the Old City.”

The Israeli Interior Minister Gilad Erdan said he was preparing a security plan to prevent “Palestinian attacks” in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem.

Sources said that the plan includes tightening the security fence in Damascus Gate and the Old City by setting up inspection points similar to military checkpoints.

Bkeerat said that the Israeli occupation started the implementation of its plan after expelling a number of Jerusalemites from the Old City and after tightening its security grip on the area by setting up military barriers and inspection points.

He described this move as a new “dangerous Israeli attack,” which will usher in “worse” measures. He noted that this is an “announcement of war on Al-Aqsa Mosque, to divide it and try to force Jerusalemites out of the Old City and from around the holy site.”
