JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces banned, on Wednesday, three Al-Aqsa Mosque guards entry to the compound in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem, to carry out their work for the next two weeks.

Head of the Public Relations and Media Department at the Islamic Endowment Firas al-Dibs said that Israeli forces handed summon notices to the three Al-Aqsa Mosque guards, for further interrogation at the Israeli police station in the Old City.

Al-Dibs added that following the interrogation, Israeli forces banned entry to the compound to all three for the next two weeks.

The three guards were identified as Hamza al-Nabali, Khalil al-Tarhouni and Ahmad Abu Alya.

Israel have previously detained and banned al-Aqsa guards on different occasions.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque. The third holiest site in Islam, it is also venerated as Judaism's most holy place, as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.
