Thursday, July 27, the IDF forces began preparations for possible unrest during Friday prayers, after the Temple mount was dismantled.
Military engineers have made earthworks in the area of Bethlehem, as well as increased protective structures on main roads, strongholds and places where riots usually occur. There were installed the concrete barriers.
We will remind, on the night of 27 July, the police completely dismantled all the security tools that were installed at the entrance to the temple mount after a terrorist attack occurred there.
The decision to remove all systems installed after the attack, was taken under pressure from the Waqf, and leaders of the Muslim communities in Jerusalem. After
Israel dismantled cameras and metal detectors, the head of the Waqf, said that Israel is not enough and you need to return the situation on the Temple mount to the one that was there on July 14.
After it became known that Israel has fulfilled the requirement of Waqf, hundreds of Muslims gathered at the Lion’s gate of the Old city and the streets of the Arab neighborhoods of the capital and celebrated the victory.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah called on his supporters on Friday, July 28, to participate in the «Day of wrath».
