Turkish opposition official slams Israel over Al-Aqsa

Turkish opposition official slams Israel over Al-Aqsa

On Friday, three Arab Israelis opened fire on police before fleeing to the nearby Haram al-Sharif compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, where security forces shot them dead.

"We will not break the solidarity of the people", said Jamal Abdallah, a Palestinian who now lives in the U.S. state of Arizona and was planning to visit Al Aqsa, but changed his mind when he was told of the situation.Israel took the highly unusual decision of closing the compound for Friday prayers, triggering anger from Muslims and Jordan, the holy site's custodian.

Given that King Salman is the Custodian of the Two Mosques, Islam's two holiest sites, one might consider his authority to overrule that of the Mufti in spiritual matters such as effect of metal detectors on the human body and its ability to convey prayer to heaven.

Palestinians believe that Israel intends to change the status-quo at the site while many Israelis voice frustration over what they see as restrictions on Jewish prayer at the complex.

Pole victor Kyle Larson tagged with post-qualifying penalty
Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin tied for second on the leaderboard, posting identical speeds of 130.568 miles per hour . Hamlin set the quick pace in his second lap of practice with a speed of 130.568mph in the back up vehicle .

Jews are allowed to visit the compound, but are forbidden from praying there for fear of sparking tensions with Muslim worshippers.

Meanwhile, two rights groups protested against the closure of the Old City and its vicinity in Jerusalem al-Quds and the ban on Palestinians from entering it.

On Saturday, Netanyahu's spokesperson for Arab Media said the site would reopen on Sunday for worshipers, visitors and tourists.

They began reopening it on Sunday, but with metal detectors in place, while security cameras were also being installed in the area.

Canada Fisherman Killed By Whale After Rescuing It From Net
Joe Howlett, who was killed Monday after disentangling a right whale from snow crab gear in the Gulf of St. LeBlanc added that any disentanglement attempt carries serious risks, and whales can be unpredictable.

"I assume that with time they will understand that this is not bad", he told Army Radio.

The new security measures are likely to be controversial.

"When I go shopping on Friday I pass through a detector at the mall", Halevy said. Several Palestinians ignored the call, while at the second entrance more people headed into the compound, Reuters photographers said. He defended Israel's new security measures, saying, "We are determined to create [a situation of] security after the killing of two police officers".

Eman Qasim shared a cartoon, showing an Israeli guard standing over a slain Palestinian child who was throwing stones, but citing the numerous crimes Israel has committed against the Palestinian people.

Active search underway for triple shooting suspect in Gardendale
The cases are scheduled for jury trial in York County Court of Common Pleas on September 11, according to online court dockets. Police say they were responding to an emergency call in Gardendale Wednesday morning when they found a man and two women dead.

Tensions have continued to simmer in the city after a wave of stabbing, shooting and vehicle-ramming attacks by Palestinians in Jerusalem, other Israeli cities and the West Bank in October 2015.
