High Security In and Around Jerusalem's Old City

reprinted from Arutz Sheva
08:01 Apr 08, '05 / 28 Adar 5765

( Security remains extremely high this morning in and around Jerusalem's Old City as attention remains focused on the Temple Mount and today's Islamic prayer services.

Thousands of police, border police, special forces and volunteer units will be deployed during the morning hours in the hope of preventing post-prayer violence by Islamic worshipers who may use an announced Sunday Jewish prayer rally on the Mount as an excuse to launch renewed violence.

Police have set an age restriction for male worshipers seeking to take part in Friday prayer services. Only males forty and over, with Israeli identity cards will be permitted atop the Mount, thereby barring Palestinian Authority (PA) residents.

In Gaza and elsewhere in PA autonomous areas on Thursday, calls were heard for demonstrations and protests to follow prayer services, calling on tens of thousands to remain on the Mount over the weekend, to sleep there to prevent Jews from coming onto the Mount to pray on Sunday.
