Jerusalem Mosque Metal Detectors To Stay

0

Israeli officials said Sunday Israel will not remove metal detectors whose installation outside a major Jerusalem mosque has triggered the bloodiest confrontations with the Palestinians in years, but could eventually reduce their use. With Israeli generals warning the violence may spiral, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering alternatives to the walk-through gates placed at entrances to al Aqsa mosque compound after two Israeli policemen were shot dead there on July 14. Tzachi Hanegbi, Israeli minister for regional development said, “The metal detectors will remain. The murderers will never tell us how to search the murderers.”
