(JNS.org) Israel’s Shin Bet security agency, along with police, shut down a Hamas-affiliated organization in Nazareth that promoted unrest on the Temple Mount.

According to the Shin Bet, the offices of Amara al-Aqsa wa al-Muqadasat, a group founded in 2009 by the Islamic Movement that was behind a series of Temple Mount riots, has ties with Hamas and has the goal of preventing “Jewish domination” of the Temple Mount.

“This activity led to an escalation of tensions on the Temple Mount, which promotes disturbances that frequently break out there, and undermines the security of visitors to the site, while harming Israeli sovereignty at the site,” the Shin Bet said.
