Man arrested for spraying graffiti on Kotel mehitza

A Jewish man believed to be mentally unstable was arrested late Monday morning after launching a tirade against “the occupation” at worshipers in the Western Wall plaza, following which he spray-painted the word “Palestine” in Hebrew on walls on both the men and women's prayer section, though not on the stones of the Kotel.
Western Wall and Holy Sites Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch expressed his grief over the desecration, and ordered the immediate erasure of the writing on the wall.
