Police allow return of MKs to Temple Mount

The Knesset Ethics Committee is expected to approve a recommendation to allow lawmakers to ascend the Temple Mount again after a seven-month ban, in a vote scheduled for Tuesday.


In a meeting with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Yinon, Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh said the police have reassessed the situation on the Temple Mount, and it is once again safe for MKs to visit.


The outline the police recommended is that Muslim MKs be allowed to ascend the mount during the last week of Ramadan, and after that, all legislators will be allowed to visit the site.
