The Kosel Heritage Foundation adds there was a steady stream of visitors to the Kosel and the Old City during chol hamoed, thanking Israel Police in particular for providing security to maintain calm during Yomtov – especially from the various gates accessing the Old City and the streets leading to and from the Kosel.
