Following the Wednesday night attempted assassination of Har Habayis activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Jerusalem Police have announced Har Habayis is closed to all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
Arab media sources however have published photos of worshippers praying on Har Habayis so it is not certain if police have truly closed down the site to everyone or possibly, permitting some Islamic worshipers onto the holy site.
Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld this morning released a Twitter message confirming Har Habayis is “closed today to prevent disturbances”.
The tzibur is requested to be mispallel for Yehuda Yehoshua ben Rivka Ita Brenda bsoch kol cholei am yisrael.
Photo below was released by the Arab media to show there are worshipers in the mosque this morning.
