An Arab-Israeli man fell to his death at the Temple Mount early Monday morning while attempting to scale a wall for a picture, police said.
According to police spokesman Shmulick Ben-Ruby, at approximately 5 a.m. the unidentified man, aged 30, of the southern town of Rahat, climbed the wall and requested his friend take his photo.
“Unfortunately, as he was climbing he fell backwards to the ground and was critically injured,” said Ben-Ruby Monday afternoon. “He was rushed by ambulance to Hadassah University Medical Center, in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem, where he was pronounced dead.”
Ben-Ruby said no foul play was suspected.
