Former Shin-Bet head responds to criticism of lax Temple Mount security

Former Shin-Bet head Yoram Cohen told Israel's Army Radio that "sometime mistakes happen even though the Shin-Bet and Israeli police work hand in hand in a very useful way."
Cohen responded to criticism that the Shin-Bet didn't handle the situation at the Temple Mount in the right way saying that  "the gates where Muslims enter the Temple Mount are not checked by security forces on a regular basis because of diplomatic reasons."
