Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday saying he came "to sound the alarm" over "extremist Israeli groups' incursions on the al-Aksa Mosque" in Jerusalem.

Speaking as tensions were high on the Temple Mount in recent weeks, Abbas accused Israel of preventing Muslim worshipers from visiting the mosque and exercising their religious rights.

He accused Israel of violating the status quo at the site which is holy to both Jews and Muslims.

"We will not accept this, and the Palestinian people will not allow the implementation of this illegal scheme," he vowed.
