Police beefed up their presence in Jerusalem’s Old City and east Jerusalem villages on Wednesday afternoon after rallying calls were issued by Palestinian elements to “protect” the Temple Mount.

It comes a day after the High Court of Justice rejected a petition by a right-wing group demanding permission to ascend the mount in order to pray on the eve of Passover.

The court cited security concerns for its ruling.
