Temple Mount entry restricted following riots – Israel News, Ynetnews

police will allow Muslim Worshipers aged 50 and over and women of all ages, who carry Israeli IDs, to attend services.

The police initially restricted access to the compound – both to tourists and visitors – as a precautionary measure, after learning that residents of east Jerusalem were urged to “come to protect the Mount.” Large police forces were deployed in the Old City as well.

The would-be precautionary measure backfired, as shortly after word that the compound had been closed spread, some 150 Arabs arrived at the Lions Gate and began stoning security forces.
