New security gadgets ahead of Temple Mt. opening Sunday
In consultation with security and police officials, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided Saturday night to re-open the Temple Mount shrine Sunday afternoon to worshippers and visitors, after metal detectors are installed at the nine gates. TV cameras outside will have a view of the interior. This was decided over long objections from Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. Netanyahu said that more security measures would be added later. They may include excluding men below a certain age entry to the mosques as in past periods of high terrorist tension. The police investigation at the site continues.
