Israel’s ban on Palestinian citizens of Israel entering Al-Aqsa ‘illegal,’ rights group says

Israeli rights group Adalah released a statement on Wednesday, calling Israel’s ban on residents of the Palestinian majority town of Umm al-Fahm in Israel from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem “illegal” and “irrational.” Palestinian citizens of Israel were being prohibited from entering the Old City of Jerusalem, where Al-Aqsa Mosque is located.
 
Adalah reported that Palestinian women who had been prevented from entering Al-Aqsa said that the Israeli police were banning them because they were members of the Jabareen family, the same family as allegedly assaulted the Al AQSA mosque few weeks ago.
