Israel interrogates Al-Aqsa Mosque director amid 'Ramadan harassment'
The authority, which is run by Jordan and oversees the holy sites in occupied East Jerusalem, gave no further details about Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani's questioning and why he was summoned by Israel.
Israeli police and intelligence services have previously arrested Al-Kiswani.
During Ramadan, Israeli forces have attacked worshippers and prevented the call to prayer on the first day of the holy month, according to media reports.
On Saturday, Israeli forces deployed tear gas and stun grenades as Palestinian worshippers left Al-Aqsa's compound through the Damascus Gate exit.
Mustafa Abu Sway of the Waqf council said the action came after Islamic officials refused to turn off loudspeakers during a memorial for fallen Israelis at the adjacent Western Wall.
Jordan, custodian of Islamic sites in Jerusalem, condemned what it called Israel's "blatant" violation of the status quo and accused it of provocation.
The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third most holy site in Islam. It was occupied by Israel along with the rest of Palestinian East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
