east jerusalem they used pepper spray and detained a number of palestinians who were attending prayers a large group of settle israeli settlers also into the compound alongside the israeli military forces joins me now for more on this from west jerusalem the holy month of ramadan ends in a few days time and the sort of disturbing video coming from one of its holiest sites will not please muslim worshippers. no indeed and usually the site is closed off to non muslims for the last 10 days of ramadan and this day right up against the end of ramadan is also drew sloan day which is celebrated by many jewish israelis it's the day that israel took over and occupied east jerusalem during the course of the $967.00 war according to the hebrew calendar the jewish calendar and so this is a major day and what had been arranged would have been announced was that rarely
3:53 pm
jews would not be allowed into the al aqsa mosque compound the site they call the temple mount on this day because of the sensitivity coming out to the end of ramadan but what actually took place was that hundreds of what we would expect to be right wing settler and religious nationalist people assembled at the gates demanding and trance and once the police had it's apparently decided that they would be allowed in this is according to the islamic walk the organization that runs the locks a mosque compound at that point there were protests inside by palestinians stones and chairs were thrown according to the police and the israeli security forces moved in and put down those demonstrations and at that point according to the works the jewish settlers were allowed to come in we've seen relatively small numbers so far but it's possible that they will continue to be allowed in even though there
3:54 pm
was an announcement of this would not be allowed to take place and then later in the afternoon we have the traditional march by hundreds of people through the center of the old city thousands of people even through the center of the old city . celebrating this victory for the state of israel as far as they're concerned and often that raises tensions very much especially in the muslim quarter of the old city in terms of comment from leaders from either side of the fence depending on who you hear you can speak to where harry are we expecting any comment regarding this particular incident or is this just part of what happens normally in this location at this time of the. well no it's not normal i mean the we do see every day. jews are allowed to come in to the to the temple mount as they call it the al aqsa mosque compound so it's not irregular it's not some kind of storming of
3:55 pm
the of the of the site as it's sometimes referred to in some quarters but what has . what isn't normal is that they're allowed in at this very sensitive time at the end of ramadan we saw hundreds of thousands people prying praying at the site on friday last friday of ramadan the 27th day of ramadan and so this is a time of extreme sensitivity and usually it would be closed often on was the question really is why the police appear to have gone back on what they had announced earlier so far as you say it's not easy to get that on so we've been trying to get that answer from the police spokesman for some time we're hoping to try to get some clarity there it may be that some kind of security consideration was given to the fact that there were already hundreds of people demanding to get in despite a high court order which had upheld the initial decision not to let them in today but what we've seen is if they're worried about potential disturbances outside now
3:56 pm
they've had disturbances inside and certainly the islamic works is in its view of the situation it says that the military came in clear the way suppressed the protest and then allowed these people to come in we'll leave it there for now until we do get to the moment how we thank you. let's stay in the region because israel's military says it's fired rockets into syria late on saturday syrian state media says 3 soldiers died and 7 others were injured in the missile strike which hit south of damascus israel says the strike followed a syrian attack on the occupied golan heights. so to asia pacific now where china says the u.s. must take full responsibility for the setback in trade talks between the 2 powers vice minister of commerce one shoe and says the u.s. can't pressure china into an agreement and beijing will not back down on its core principles my dummy argument well the trade war has not made america great again
