Before heading to a state visit to France and Hungary Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed on Saturday evening the new security measures to be implemented on Temple Mount following the Friday terrorist attack. 

Netanyahu told Israeli media that Temple Mount will be gradually re-opened to prayers on Sunday as new security cameras and metal detectors are being installed. The security cameras will be placed on high polls to provide Israeli security with information on what is taking place on Temple Mount and metal detectors placed at the gates leading to it. 

On Friday three terrorists opened fire on a group of Israeli policemen at Temple Mount, killing two officers and wounding two. Israeli police perused them and neutralized them.
