Arrests at Temple Mount after fight breaks out between Jewish, Muslim visitors

(Worthy News) – Israeli police said on Tuesday that hundreds of Jewish visitors were permitted to visit the Temple Mount to mark the Jewish holy day of Tisha b’Av, but that six visitors were ejected from the flashpoint site for “violation of the rules.”

Under the status quo that governs Muslim and Jewish access to the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, Jews are prohibited from praying there, but are allowed to visit. It is the holiest site in Judaism, and third holiest site in Islam.

According to police, at the end of the visit of one Jewish group to the site, a quarrel broke out between Jewish and Muslim visitors. Police intervened and arrested three Jewish suspects and one Muslim man. [ Source: i24 (Read More…) ]
