Arab soccer ball confiscated on the Temple Mount

The Israel Police stopped a soccer game on the Temple Mount and confiscated the ball from the Arab boys who played it, according to a Facebook video. One of the boys initially looks as if he refuses to hand over the ball, but later he does not object to the policeman's activities.

Police recently told Yair Kehati from the Hozrim Lahar (We're returning to the Mount) organization - who complained about the ball games on the holy site - that procedures on the matter would be tightened. Kahati welcomed the move and expressed hope that police would increase their enforcement on the Temple Mount and allow Jews to pray there without hindrances as it allows the Arabs.
