Israel: Fire at Al Aqsa Mosque Caused by Arabs Shooting Fireworks at Police


har-habayis-yerushalayimWhile Jordan accused Israel of attacking and desecrating the Al Aqsa Mosque in Yerushalayim on Wednesday and withdrew its ambassador, Israel denied it was responsible for a fire that burned some carpets.

Israeli police blamed Arabs who lit fireworks aimed at police from within the mosque. “If there were any fires, it was as a result of the fireworks that were being fired,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

Jordanian officials complained that Israeli police forces had desecrated the mosque by entering it. Police said they went a few feet inside the mosque to shut the door to block rioters who had taken cover inside.
