French President Emmanuel Macron got angry at policemen who sought to enter with him into the Church of Saint Anne in the Old City of Jerusalem.

"Everyone knows the rules. I don't like what you did in front of me, go outside. Nobody has to provoke anybody," he told police.

Macron told the Shin Bet officer in front of him: "You did a great job in the city. I do appreciate it. Please respect the rules as they are for centuries. They will not change with me."

Macron later apologized to the Israel police for his outburst.
