Muslim authority protests Temple Mount security measures, blocks entrance

•, Udi Shaham

Israeli police lifted a ban on Muslim worshipers entering Jerusalem's Temple Mount compound on Sunday after it was closed in the wake of a deadly attack that resulted in the deaths of two Border Police officers at the contested holy site on Friday.

A police spokesperson told The Jerusalem Post that at this stage, two gates will open to the public - The Gate of the Tribes (Bab al-asbat) and The Council Gate (Bab al-Majlis).The ban was lifted after police decided that new security measures would be taken at the site, including metal detectors that were placed at the entrances to the compound in an effort to monitor and prevent smuggling of the weapons inside.
