Temple Mount will be closed to Jews on Jerusalem Day

The police have announced that the Temple Mount will be closed to Jews for several days at the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, including the anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem during the Six Day War.

It's the first time in 30 years that such a closure has been announced. A petition has been filed against the closure. Another petition is fighting the police decision to close the holy site to non-Muslims every afternoon during Ramadan.
