YWN-ISRAEL recently reported that with the assistance of the Waqf Authority, Israel Police on Har Habayis apprehended PA (Palestinian Authority) residents responsible for a rock attack against a Jewish mispallel on the holy site. The victim of the attack was lightly injured.

The Waqf Authority calls the Israel Police report “slanderous and lies about guards of the mosque who are doing their job to protect al-Aqsa Mosque and overcome difficulties in front of fasting worshipers…”

The statement ends adding “This is a mockery of lies and slander by the police, which wants to spread sedition and division inside the al-Aqsa Mosque”.
