Police allow return of MKs to Temple Mount

The Knesset Ethics Committee is expected to approve a recommendation to allow lawmakers to ascend the Temple Mount again, after an over seven-month ban, in a vote on Tuesday.

In a meeting with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Knesset Legal Adviser Eyal Yinon, Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh said the police has reassessed the situation on the Temple Mount, and it is once again safe for MKs to visit.

The outline the police recommended is that Muslim MKs be allowed to ascend the Mount during the last week of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and after that, all legislators will be allowed to visit site.
