A spokesperson for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says Israel is “playing with fire” by allowing “settlers to desecrate holy sites” on Jerusalem Day.

“[Israel] is disregarding international law and considers itself above the law,” presidential spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudeineh says, according to the official WAFA news agency.

Abu Rudeineh calls for “the international community, especially the US administration, to assume their responsibilities regarding what is taking place.”
