After a week of violence and protests by the people, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that the metal detectors installed at the Mount Doom, Al Aqsa, among many others will be removed. The Israel PM says that the Government will look towards subtler means of security to keep the wrongdoers at bay.
The metal detectors at these religious institutions were installed after a fight between two armed civilians and policemen in the area. These led to the Government taking up new measures to strengthen the security. But this has led to protests by people all over the country and abroad as it defiles the place of worship and prayer.
The Palestine Prime Minister, Rami Hamdallah has suspended all forms of communication with Israel. Various religious groups have condemned the Israeli PM for such an act.
