Tens of Jews ascended to the Temple Mount Tuesday, on Israel’s Independence Day (Yom Haatzmaut).
They were warned not to pray at the location, but they did so anyway. The police escort who accompanied the Jewish groups was friendly and polite, according to the Jewish activists.
Seven of the gates to the Mount are closed Tuesday. During the rest of the year, the police allow free access to the Mount through these gates, but only to Muslims.
