2 Young Women Arrested for Incitement on Temple Mount

Two young women were arrested, Sunday evening when they prayed at the gates to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City. They had a bag containing stickers that read "We're returning to the Mount" and "Kahane was right." The police said the girls were suspected of incitement.

Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, who represents the young women on behalf of the Honenu legal-aid organization, said, "It is regrettable that the police do not give freedom of prayer to Jews near the Temple Mount. It's a case of illegal detention and I will recommend to the girls to file a civil suit."
