Joint List MK Basel Ghattas ascended the Temple Mount on Wednesday morning despite the ban imposed earlier this month by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for all parliamentarians and ministers from visiting the site.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implemented the ban against visiting the Temple Mount in an effort to quell a rising wave of Palestinian violence that has swept over Israel in the last few weeks.
