Israel police withdraw from Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock News

According to Firas al-Dibs, a spokesman for Jerusalem's Religious Endowments Authority, the incident began earlier on Monday when Palestinian guards shut the mosque after an Israeli policeman tried to enter the site without permission.

"The guards asked the policeman to take off his [Jewish Kippah] cap before entering the mosque, but he ref used and attempted to force his way into the place, prompting the guards to close it, " Dibs said the Israeli police carry out routine security checks every morning. However, since the officer refused to remove his kippah, the guards became suspicious that he was going to perform the Jewish prayer inside the mosque.

Non-Muslims are allowed to visit the site during certain hours, but are not allowed to pray at the site.
