Mount of Olives security fence vandalized

After many months of relative quiet on the Mount of Olives, visiting worshipers were amazed to learn that a section of the security fence near the Yemenite-Afghanistan section of the cemetery was destroyed by Arabs to allow passage from the neighborhood of Ash-Sheikh.

The construction of this fence was completed in the last year after great efforts, in order to minimize violent security incidents on the Mount of Olives, as part of the activities carried out by the International Committee for the Protection of the Mount of Olives in cooperation with government and police officials. A complaint has been lodged with police.
