Worshipers under 35 were barred from the Al Aqsa shrine in Jerusalem on Friday as the Israeli government tried to tamp down anger among both Palestinians and Jordanian officials over access to the site.
Israel's foreign ministry rejected the allegations and questioned why Hamas wasn't accused of terrorism. The report was published on the day of another apparent terror attack along Jerusalem's rail line.
Israel reopened access to the Al Aqsa Mosque to Palestinian women and men over 50 years old for Friday prayers, but security forces are on alert after Fatah and Hamas called for 'a day of rage.'
Police said the Palestinian man attempted to assassinate Yehuda Glick, a controversial rabbi who advocates for greater Jewish access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, a holy site for both Muslims and Jews.
