A representative for Palestinian pioneer Mahmoud Abbas has depicted the conclusion of a questioned Jerusalem heavenly site as a “statement of war”.
The move came in the midst of pressure and roughness after the shooting of a Jewish dissident. Israel’s PM urged quiet, saying Mr Abbas was stoking distress.
The sacred site will revive on Friday, Israel’s economy pastor says.
Yehuda Glick, a campaigner for more prominent Jewish supplication to God rights at the Temple Mount/al-Haram al-Sharif, was injured.
Israeli police later slaughtered a Palestinian associated with shooting him. Moataz Hejazi, 32, was shot in the wake of opening discharge when police encompassed his home.
Rabbi Glick is a well-known US-conceived campaigner for the right of Jews to supplicate at the site, which is presently disallowed.
The compound – referred to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif – is the holiest site in Judaism, and contains the al-Aqsa Mosque – the third holiest site in Islam.
