Security Forces Mobilized in Jerusalem as Unrest Builds


Police forces throughout Jerusalem's Old City and Arab neighborhoods have been mobilized Friday morning, ahead of a 72-hour "humanitarian ceasefire" in Gaza and the first Friday after Ramadan.

Jerusalem District Police Commander, Superintendent Yossi Pariente, decided to limit access of the Temple Mount for Muslims on Friday, allegedly ahead of the expected violation of the ceasefire, which is due to begin at 8:00 am.
