JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian youths have retreated to the al-Aqsa compound to protest Israeli calls to raise Israeli flags inside it on Tuesday.

Witnesses said that around 50 young men remained at the compound after the evening prayers to prevent any attempts to raise the Israeli flag in it.

Witnesses added that Israeli police at the gates of al-Aqsa seized the ID cards of dozens of youths before the entered the compound.

The calls came after a group of rabbis submitted a petition to the Knesset demanding legislation to extend Jewish sovereignty on the Temple Mount.

Israeli MK Taleb Abu Arrar called on international officials and Jordanian King Abdullah II to pressure Israel to retract “such things and respect the sacredness of the place.”

Abu Arrar condemned allowing rightist Moshe Feiglin to visit the compound, and said it was “a reward to him” for retracting a proposal to inset on sovereignty of the site last week.
