Temple Mount reopens to Jewish visitors after temporary closure

The Temple Mount has been reopened for the entrance of Jewish worshipers and visitors, police announced Wednesday afternoon after it had earlier closed the compound due to “breaching the rules of conduct that apply to the holy site.”

According to a police statement, Jerusalem District Police Commander, Maj.-Gen. Yoram Halevy decided to close the Mughrabi gate, which is the only gate that Jews and tourist can use to enter the Temple Mount, after a group broke the rules of visit. A Haaretz report holds that a Jewish group smuggled holy books (Sifrei Kodesh) inside the compound.
