Likud activist Moshe Feiglin was detained on the Temple Mount on Tuesday morning after police accused him of praying on the Temple Mount. Police detained Feiglin and removed him from the site but did not close the area to other visitors.

Praying out loud or using any type of traditional prayer objects such as tefillin, tallit, or prayerbooks is forbidden for Jews at Judaism's holiest site due to tensions with Muslims worshipers at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

National police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Feiglin prostrated himself on the ground and began chanting, in violation of the law.
