Netanyahu To Lift Ban On MKs Visiting Har Habayis


A ban on Israeli lawmakers visiting the flashpoint Har Habayis will be lifted for a trial period later this month, the government said Sunday.

Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered Jewish and Muslim lawmakers off the site a year and half ago, after the outbreak in October 2015 of a wave of Palestinian violence and terror attacks centered around claims that Israel was attempting to take control of the compound.

Following discussions with Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit, the prime minister decided that in three weeks the ban on MKs going to Har Habayis will be lifted for a period of seven days to assess the fallout from the move.

The development came after MK Yehudah Glick, a lawmaker from Netanyahu’s Likud party and activist for the right to Jewish prayer on the Har Habayis, filed a High Court of Justice court petition against the ban. Read more at Times Of Israel.
