Police temporarily close Temple Mount to non-Muslim visitors

Following two days of rioting by Arab youths on the Temple Mount, the police announced the contested holy site would be closed to non-muslim visitors on Tuesday
through Thursday.
In a statement, police said the decision was made after security assessments indicated it was not safe for Jewish visitors, who have been the target of attacks there during the final 10 days of Ramadan.
Police have arrested 10 Arab suspects since a Sunday for throwing rocks and other objects at Jews visiting the compound since Sunday.
