Less than an hour before the daily prayers, it became known that the Jerusalem Islamic Council (WAQF) has put forward a new ultimatum to Israel. Council members demanded to open the gates of Bab al-ZAARA — located in the Muslim quarter of the Old city.
Council members warned that if their demand is not met, the prayer will be held outside of the Temple mount, and protests of Muslims will continue.
Previously, the Nana10 website reported that at 16:30, for the first time after Israel has fulfilled all the requirements of the WAQF, in al-Aqsa mosque must be prayer. However, even in the afternoon, the police briefed members of the Islamic Council a list of persons who will not be allowed on the temple mount. In particular, the list included the guards of the Waqf.
