The Palestinian Authority on Tuesday strongly condemned Israel for allowing Jewish “extremists” to “storm” the Temple Mount and imposing restrictions on Muslim worshipers.

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal phoned PA President Mahmoud Abbas and discussed with him the recent developments at the Temple Mount, Palestinian officials said. The two also discussed ways of ending the dispute between the PA and Hamas, the officials added.

Also Tuesday, Abbas phoned Jordan’s King Abdullah and discussed with him the latest developments at the Temple Mount.

Several Palestinian factions called for a “day of rage” on Friday in protest against Israeli “assaults” on the Temple Mount and Muslim worshipers.
