Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said Israel “will not allow a religious war to be caused on Temple Mount” and warned  any attempt to “damage Israeli sovereignty on Temple mount”  will be met with the “fierce resistance” of Police, Ynet reported on Tuesday. 

Jerusalem Police closed all entrances to the Temple Mount on Tuesday after Palestinians reportedly threw a Molotov cocktail at a police outpost on the compound. Dozens of policemen entered the compound after the incident.



In a Monday interview with Radio 103FM Erdan said that Israel will not allow “another mosque be built on Temple Mount.”
