Muslims try to prevent Jews from entering Temple Mount

By Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondent and Itim

A group of Muslim worshippers on Monday morning tried to prevent Jewish visitors from entering the Temple Mount compound.

The Muslims were standing at the Mugrabi Gate in order to prevent the entrance of the Jewish visitors, and a confrontation erupted between the groups. After police intervention, the Muslims left the area and the Jews were allowed to enter the site.

The Temple Mount was opened last week to non-Muslim visitors, and it will be open daily between 9 A.M. and 11 A.M.
