The Temple Mount opened to Jewish visitors on Sunday Morning, for the first time since the start of Operation Guardian of the Walls. Previously, on Jerusalem Day, Police Chief Kobi Shabtai prohibited the entrance of Jews to the Temple Mount, out of fear that violence would erupt among the Muslims praying there, who had rioted that day.

Later, with the development of an escalation in Gaza, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed that the Temple Mount remain closed to Jews. Now, following the ceasefire agreement, the government has decided to change the policy. 
Otzma Yehudit chairman Itamar Ben-Gvir said in response, “This is an important step that the prime minister is taking and shows that Israel has not given up on her values. 
“At the same time, paying attention to the situation on at the Temple Mount, the incessant discrimination, the fact that Jews are not allowed to pray in public and the shortened hours of Jews at the Temple Mount calls on the prime minister to equalize the situation between Jews and Arabs on the Temple Mount and prevent racism and inequality. 
“It is not possible that in a Jewish state there will be a violation of racial rights.”
