RAMALLAH: Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas backed calls for worshippers to return to Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque on Thursday after Israeli authorities removed controversial new security measures.
“The prayers will happen, God willing, inside the Al-Aqsa mosque,” Abbas told a press conference, moments after Muslim authorities announced an end to a nearly two-week boycott of the site over new Israeli metal detectors, cameras and railings installed after a July 14 attack killed two policemen.
