A throwback reminder when Secretary of State John Kerry forced Israel’s Prime Minister to accept Jordan’s King Abdullah’s idea regarding the Temple Mount: surveillance cameras:
Israel and Jordan agree to put surveillance cameras on Temple Mount
October 25, 2015
Then it seemed it was proceeding
JORDAN ABANDONS PLAN TO INSTALL CAMERAS ON TEMPLE MOUNT
APRIL 18, 2016
And now we learn that the weapons used to kill the two policemen were brought into the compound:
Video from security cameras [outside the compound – YM] obtained by the police shows the first moments of Friday morning’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem, in which police officers Haiel Sitawe and Kamil Shnaan were murdered.
As can be seen in the video, the armed terrorists were in the vicinity of the Temple Mount compound, exploiting the sanctity of the site and Israel’s easing of restrictions on worshippers in order to harm the security forces.
But I’m just a blogger.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this evening (Saturday, 15 July 2017), held a telephone consultation on the issue of the Temple Mount. It was decided to gradually open the Temple Mount to worshippers, visitors and tourists beginning tomorrow afternoon (Sunday, 16 July 2017). It was decided that the entrance gates to the Temple Mount would be equipped with metal detectors and that cameras would be installed outside the Mount to cover events on the Mount. Additional security steps will be taken later.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Ronni Alsheich. ISA Director Nadav Argaman and Jerusalem District Police Commander Yoram Halevy participated in the consultation.
