Police to Heighten Security on the Temple Mount

( Israel Police has announced it will increase security on the Temple Mount of Jerusalem's Old City in light of increased threats of a planned attack by radical elements, Israel Radio reported.

Despite police statements of increased concerns of an attack by right-wing extremist elements, Shin Bet officials earlier in the week discarded reports of credible intelligence community warnings of such an occurrence.

In a related matter, security and intelligence community officials are in agreement regarding the fragile nature of the Temple Mount, now occupied by the Islamic Wakf Authority, stating that any attack against the mosques on the Mount would result in a reverberation of the global Islamic community.

The Temple Mount is the holiest site to the Jewish People, hosting both the First and Second Temples and will be the site of the Third and permanent Temple in the future.
