Two removed, two arrested during Temple Mount visits

Four people were removed from the Temple Mount plaza in Jerusalem during visits in honor of the Tisha B'av holiday on Tuesday, which commemorates the destruction on the Temple. Around 9:00 a.m., two Jewish worshipers asked for permission to pray in the plaza, which is forbidden due to a delicate status quo agreement. They were immediately removed from the premises by border police.
Half an hour later, two Arabs were removed after they allegedly tried to incite other Arab worshipers against the Jewish worshipers. The two men were taken to the police station for further questioning. There was no violence and visits were continuing as normal.
