Following this morning's terror attack at the Temple Mount, Fatah has released various statements denouncing the Israeli decision to close the compound, preventing Muslim prayer for the remainder of the day. 

Fatah tweeted that it calls upon Muslims to go to Al Aksa and pray in defiance of Israel's decision to close the site for prayer Fatah's spokesperson said the decision of the "Israeli occupying forces" to close the Al Aksa mosque and "deny Muslims the right to pray there" is a "dangerous and deplorable" escalation of aggression against the Palestinians.

Fatah also called on the Palestinian people to go to the Al Aksa mosque and stay there.
