Israeli security forces disconnected the power supply to the Islamic call to prayer on the Temple Mount as an official Memorial Day service was held in the adjacent Western Wall square on Tuesday evening, the site’s Muslim administrators said. “[Israeli forces] forcibly stormed the minarets of Al-Aqsa Mosque after cutting the door locks with special equipment, then they cut the wires of the main minarets in the mosque,” Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani, who manages the Temple Mount for the Jordanian-backed Islamic Waqf, said on Wednesday. The Israel Police declined to comment on the alleged operation, refusing to answer over the phone or to a written email query. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas weighed in on the incident through a spokesperson, calling it “a racist hate crime.”
