Abbas tells Palestinians 'settlers' have 'no right to desecrate Temple Mount'

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told a gathering in Ramallah on Friday that "settlers" have no right "to desecrate" the Temple Mount.
"This is our holy place," the Palestinian leader said. "Al-Aqsa is ours and the [Church of the Holy Sepulcher] is ours. They have no right to enter there and desecrate the place."
Abbas called on the Palestinian people to "unite in defense of Jerusalem."
