Temple Mount firebombing

Unrest at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount (also known as Haram esh-Sharif and the Al Aqsa Compound) led Israeli police to shut off access on Tuesday after several weeks of tension at the location, reports eTurbonews.

Residents said police were also restricting access to Jerusalem’s Old City, where the site is located. Police say that the Temple Mount will reopen to worshipers and visitors Wednesday morning.

Travellers are advised to exercise caution when visiting the site.
