Israel says still reviewing access to Al-Aqsa Mosque over Ramadan

Israel is reviewing possible curbs on access to Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem over the upcoming Ramadan fast month, a government spokesperson said on Thursday following media reports that the far-right minister for police might be overruled on the issue.

“The specific issue of prayer on the Temple Mount, in Al-Aqsa, is currently still under discussion by the cabinet,” the spokesperson, Avi Hyman, told reporters. He added that a final decision would take security and public health into account.
