An Israeli man was arrested, placed on house arrest, and forbidden from entering the Temple Mount for several months by a Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court judge on Wednesday after threatening to set a massive fire at the holy site during Lag B’Omer.

According to police, Daniel Sedika, of Jerusalem, recently made the threats on his Facebook page, writing that he would set a bonfire on the Temple Mount to “inflame the Middle East” on the holiday.
