Commenting on the clash between security forces and Palestinian rioters on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem early Sunday, President Reuven Rivlin lamented the violence in light of Tisha B'Av, a day of mourning in which Jews commemorate the destruction of the First and Second Temple.

"The acts of violence and terrorism committed especially today, against the worshipers at holy sites, must be condemned unequivocally."

“I express my support for the security forces," Rivlin added,  "for their determination to prevent any harm or interference to the prayers at the Western Wall, the remnant of our Temple.

"Such acts of hatred cannot be tolerated and we will not allow any disturbances to prevent Jews from praying at this holy site.”
