After the protesters were cleared from the area by police, Jews began going to the Temple Mount Sunday morning in order to pray there on Tisha Be'Av.
No incidents were reported during Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, which lasted until Sunday afternoon. Some 1,679 Jews prayed on the Temple Mount for Tisha Be'Av.
Ayala Ben-Gvir, wife of far-right Otzma Yehudit MK Itamar Ben-Gvir, went to pray at the Temple Mount with hundreds of other Jews, saying that "it is important not only to sit and cry, but to show up and go on the Temple Mount."
"We are not in exile; we must think how to improve and act for sovereignty and Jewish visits to this holy place,” she said. “Whoever controls the Temple Mount controls the Land of Israel in its entirety, and this is how we will work toward control of this holy and important site.”
