Police to Limit Muslim Presence on Temple Mount Friday


Due to the intent of young Muslims to disrupt order on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, the Jerusalem police decided, Thursday, to limit the Muslim worshippers at the holy site on Friday to men over 50 with blue identity cards and women with no age limit.

Another announcement coming out of a security assessment was that large forces of police will deploy from the early-morning hours throughout eastern Jerusalem, with an emphasis on the Old City, in order to prevent disturbances.
