Police presence in Jerusalem to be boosted ahead of Friday Ramadan prayers

The police presence will be significantly boosted on Friday across Jerusalem with emphasis being placed on the Old City.

The move comes ahead of the first Friday prayers during the festival of Ramadan. Thousands of policemen will be stationed across East Jerusalem in light of the expectation that tens of thousands of Muslims will attend the prayers on the Temple Mount.

The police have also decided not to restrict the age or worshippers entering the Mount.
