Muslim activist claims Israel staged firebombing at holy site

Israeli authorities reopened the al-Aqsa Mosque to Muslim worshipers starting from dawn prayers on Wednesday, a day after police closed the entire site following clashes with Palestinians. The closure came after what Israel said was a Molotov cocktail thrown at a police station just inside the plaza that Arabs call Haram al-Sharif, and Jews the Temple Mount. Police said that 10 people were arrested in connection with the firebombing.
Hanadi Halawani, one of a group of Palestinians who voluntarily remain at the al-Aqsa to watch over it, said she witnessed the incident and claimed to The Media Line that it had been staged by police, saying Israeli authorities didn’t move to extinguish the blaze, “which proves that they were behind it.” She further blamed Israeli security forces for the resulting unrest.
