      Temple Mount Restrictions for Muslim Worshippers Friday

      In an attempt to minimize the chance of violence, Jerusalem-district police chief Yossi Pariente decided, Thursday, that access for male Muslim worshippers to Temple Mount mosques, Friday, will be limited to those 40 years of age or older with blue Israeli identity cards. There will be no age limit for women and girls.

      The decision followed an assessment of the situation with senior staff.
