Description

The Israeli government closed the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem to all worshipers and visitors, the first time since 1967. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the move was tantamount to a declaration of war. Tensions are rising in the occupied West Bank following the killing of an ultra-right wing Israeli activist and subsequent reprisals by Tel Aviv. Noor Harazeen reports from Gaza. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/web/telesur/#!en/video/israel-closes-al-aqsa-mosque-in-jerusalem-igniting-a-storm-of-protest
