Hamas Boosts Temple Mount Activities

The Jerusalem Police are becoming wary of the increasing activity by Hamas members on the Temple Mount, and despite attempts to clamp down on the recruiting and expressions of support for the organization, police officers are not convinced that the activities are "even close" to being on the decline, Israel Radio reported on Monday.

On Monday morning, police were set to request a remand extension for four east Jerusalem residents who are suspected of leading a Hamas faction on the Temple Mount.

The four were due to be brought before the Jeruslaem District Court.

Over the weekend, five youngsters, holders of Israeli identity cards, were arrested on suspicion of hanging a Hamas flag and pictures of Hamas's Palestinian Authority Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, at the site.

Police officials told Army Radio that Hamas was attempting to exploit the large numbers attending prayer services on the Temple Mount for the Id Al-Adha holiday, and thus making special efforts to expand its activities during this period.

On Saturday, Israel banned four other people from the Temple Mount for a period of 15 days after they also hung pictures of Haniyeh and flags of the movement at the site.
