The High Court of Justice ruled Monday that members of the fringe Temple Mount Faithful can enter the Temple Mount on Thursday during a Jewish fast day, but barred the group's leader from even approaching the Jerusalem holy site, police and the group said. The decision was handed down following a petition filed by the ultra-nationalist group leader Gershon Solomon against police who wanted to ban their entry altogether on a Tisha Be'Av.
