Member of Knesset and Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel ascended to the Temple Mount on Sunday morning.
Uri Ariel's visit to the Temple Mount came after the three-year ban on Member's of Knesset visiting the holy site was revoked by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Ariel is a member of the the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party, and in a Sunday morning interview with Kan radio, Ariel mentioned that he did not agree with party leader Naftali Bennett's stance on Members of Knesset not visiting the controversial holy site.
The new policy, revised by Netanyahu, allows members of Knesset to visit the Temple Mount once ever three months and reverses previous legislation which forbade MK's from visitations for security reasons.
