Activists from Peace Now Movement demonstrated Tuesday at al-Magharba gate where MKs Yehuda Glick, of Likud party, and Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, of the Jewish Home, broke into al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Movement expressed protest at the Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision to allow members of the Knesset to enter the holy site in a one-day trial.
According to Maariv website, MKs intending to enter the Mosque must obtain the approval of the Knesset’s security commander and the Jerusalem police chief.
Based on the decision, MKs will be able to enter the site through Bab al-Magharba only at times when Jewish settlers are allowed to visit it. Political speeches and media interviews are not allowed during the visits, and MKs are prohibited from entering the Islami Waqf offices.
Arab MKs announced that they will enter al-Aqsa Mosque whenever they want and not when Netanyahu wants.
