Israel allows Jerusalem mosque access despite Palestinian 'Day of Rage'

Israeli police preparing for a Palestinian "Day of Rage" increased their presence in Jerusalem on Friday but set no extra restrictions on access for worshipers at the flashpoint al-Aqsa Mosque, saying they had no indication of unrest there.


Palestinian factions have called for demonstrations in response to US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Islamist terror group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has urged Palestinians to launch a new uprising.
