Jerusalem Police to Beef Up Presence Around Temple Mount

reprinted from Haaretz
24/10/2009

Jerusalem police will beef up their forces on Sunday around the Temple Mount, after Muslim leaders urged Arabs to defend Jerusalem against "Jewish conquest," Israel Radio reported.

The Muslim leaders made the calls in East Jerusalem and northern Israel.

Police reportedly stressed that Jewish elements have also called for their coreligionists to visit the Temple Mount, a tense site holy to Jews and Muslims.

Nonetheless, police said they would allow Jews to visit the compound and allow Muslims to pray there in accordance with the current guidelines, Israel Radio reported.

Police said that they would deal harshly with any attempt to disturb the peace on the Temple Mount and around it. According to Israel Radio, officers also plan to deploy in the capital's Old City and in East Jerusalem.

Earlier in the month, Police clashed sporadically with Muslim protesters in and around the compound. No one was seriously injured, but in the past deadly violence has erupted at the site.
