Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will end his official visit to China earlier then planned and return to Ramallah to better follow the events around Temple Mount, reports the Palestinian News Agency Wafa.

Following a deadly terrorist attack Israeli security forces placed metal detectors at the entrances to al-Aksa mosque as well as security cameras. For the past four days Muslim worshipers refused to comply to these new requirements and held prayers outside the al-Aksa mosque.
