Jews, Arabs arrested at Temple Mount on Tisha B'av

Six people have been removed from the Temple Mount plaza in Jerusalem during visits in honor of the Tisha B'av holiday on Tuesday, which commemorates the destruction on the Temple.
Three Jewish worshipers who attempted to pray in the plaza, which is forbidden due to a delicate status quo agreement, were immediately removed from the premises by border police and taken for questioning. Three Arabs were removed, two after they allegedly tried to incite other Arab worshipers and one for calling out racist comments to Jewish worshipers.
The three Arab men were taken to the police station for further questioning.
