A visit to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound by two Israeli lawmakers is a sign that shows the extremist Knesset members take advantage of recent clashes between Israelis and Palestinians to exacerbate the tense situation, says an author.

“There is no reason for them (the Knesset members) to visit the al-Aqsa compound, no reason at all, and the only reason they have done it is to stoke tensions, maybe stoke violence,” Stephen Lendman told Press TV on Wednesday.

The Israeli regime continues to put more pressure on Palestinians and the international community does nothing but issuing statements, Lendman said.
