Temple Mount Open to Jews, Limited Access to Muslims


Following an evaluation of the recent riotous events at Temple Mount enacted by militant Arab youths, it was decided that access to the site will be temporarily denied to all Arab youths. Arab men over the age of 50 and carrying a blue identity card will be allowed to enter Temple Mount to pray. Arab women of all ages will be allowed entry. Jewish visitors will be allowed entry.

In addition, local police forces arrested 5 Arab youths during the night (Saturday) after they were caught attempting to climb over the site’s western fence and enter the closed grounds.
