Thousands of Palestinians return to Temple Mount

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
July 27, 2017

A Palestinian man waves the Palestinian flag as Muslim men and women celebrate outside the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, known to Muslims as the Haram el-Sherif (Noble Sanctuary) and to Jews as the Temple Mount, in Jerusalem’s Old City, 27 July 2017, before holding noon prayers outside the al-Aqsa compound. Muslim religious elders from the Waqf, a Jordanian-backed body that oversees the Muslim religious sites in Jerusalem, said that worshippers can return to the inside of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound since they determined that Israel had removed all metal detectors and cameras installed following the deadly attack on Israeli police on July 14. Palestinians are expected to enter the Mosque compound for the first time later this evening.
