Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided on Monday to assess past policy which disallowed lawmakers and ministers to visit the Temple Mount.
According to a Channel 2 news report, the measure will only come into force after considering the security situation in three months time, once the Jewish holidays and the Muslim month of Ramadan month have passed, which could spark violence.
It was reported that Netanyahu met on Monday with security personnel, including Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) director Nadav Argaman and Jerusalem District police chief Yoram Halevy, to assess the measure.
The Knesset Ethics Committee decided in January to lift the ban prohibiting MKs from entering the area.
