Attempts to transform historic Temple Mount’s Mercy Gate into a mosque continue
BREAKING: Security forces confiscated equipment brought by Muslims into the Temple Mount’s Mercy Gate in order 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 historic site 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.
