4 wanted terrorists arrested in Judea-Samaria – Equipment seized at Temple Mount’s Mercy Gate
BREAKING: The IDF arrested four Muslim terrorists over the weekend in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
In addition, security forces overnight confiscated equipment brought by Muslims into the Mercy Gate to transform the historic site into a Mosque.
Mercy Gate is a large structure on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount that was closed several years ago based on a court order because the group running the was found to have ties to Hamas.
In February, PM Netanyahu instructed authorities to close Mercy Gate and stop its renovations to transform the site into a mosque. In March it was revealed that the Jordanian Waqf, which manages the site, rejected the Israeli court order and the construction continued.
