Increased Police Presence Around Temple Mount


Jerusalem police will increase staffing around the Temple Mount in the Old City, ahead of the first Friday prayers of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. With no restrictions on access to mosques on the holy site, tens of thousands are expected.

Because of Ramadan, there are no restrictions on Palestinian Authority men over the age of 45 or women of any age from entering Jerusalem. Males of other ages require permits.
