Jerusalem police increased deployment of forces for Tisha Be'av on Saturday night as thousands of worshipers arrived at the Western Wall to mark the day of mourning.

Police commander Moshe Barkat told Army Radio that the police will allow Jewish worshipers to enter the Temple Mount during Tisha Be'av on Saturday night and Sunday.

He noted that the police will attempt to prevent clashes with Muslims praying on the Mount during the month of Ramadan.
