Police Close Har Habayis to Visitors


hhaA group of Jews visited Har Habayis on Sunday morning 28 Kislev 5774 and some of the group began singing Chanukah songs. This led to protest among Muslims, escalating to a confrontation between the sides.

Police arrested four people, two Jews and two Muslims and announced Har Habayis is closed to visitors, which means Har Habayis remains open to Muslims exclusively.
