Palestinian media claims some Muslims barred from entering Temple Mount

Amid simmering tensions, Palestinian media reports claim Israeli forces have prevented some Muslim worshipers from accessing the Temple Mount for Ramadan prayers, and that they are holding prayers outside instead.

Some unverified reports indicate that hundreds of people who have barricaded themselves for many hours inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque have reopened the mosque’s gates.

However, it is yet to be seen if clashes can be avoided this morning, as Jews are set to visit the flashpoint holy site in Jerusalem and masses are expected at the adjacent Western Wall for the traditional Priestly Blessing prayers for Passover.
