First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), Ahmad Bahar, warned on Wednesday that Israel is deceiving Palestinians by removing the metal detectors set up at al-Aqsa Mosque’s gates.
Bahar stressed that the new smart cameras intended to be installed at the Mosque are far more dangerous than the metal detectors.
In his speech in a parade organized by the Palestinian security services in Gaza, Bahar added that Jerusalem is a central Palestinian issue that cannot be confined to the latest Israeli measures alone, calling for escalating Palestinian resistance.
A parade was held in Gaza on Wednesday in support for al-Aqsa Mosque with the participation of 2,000 members of the security services of Gaza’s Ministry of Interior. The parade made its way toward the PLC building to attend a solidarity protest staged in the presence of a number of MPs.
