In light of plans by Palestinian youth to riot at the Temple Mount on Friday, police decided on Thursday night to limit the age of Muslim worshipers entering the compound to men aged 40 and older.

Security forces planned to allow entrance to Friday prayers to women of all ages.

Police and Border Police officers were set to deploy in increased numbers on Friday in order to deter any attempted disorderly conduct by Arab demonstrators.
