Worshippers Flood Kotel Plaza

Hundreds of thousands of Jews flooded the Kotel (Western Wall) Plaza on Monday night to say traditional Tisha B’Av lamentations.  Thousands marched around the Old City as well to mark the day of mourning, on which the first and second Temples were destroyed.


Police prevented a group of Jews led by Land of Israel activists Noam Federman and Itamar Ben Gvir from praying at a gate leading to the Temple Mount.  Noam Federman was arrested.
