National Union Visits Temple Mount Without Permission


Members of the National Union Party visited the Temple Mount on Thursday without permission from security forces. MKs Arieh Eldad, Uri Ariel and Michael Ben Ari took part in order to check the accessibility of Jews to the area. The MKs toured without aides and without personal guards.

MK Arieh Eldad said they decided not to inform authorities after they saw how in past visits security forces had mainly hampered them instead of helped them.
