Knesset Refuses to Declassify Temple Mount Report

A joint session of Knesset sub-committees discussed on Tuesday a confidential report from the State Comptroller citing serious failures by authorities to safeguard and maintain the Temple Mount.

During the meeting MK Uri Ariel (National Union) again requested the report be released for public consumption on the grounds that the public had a right to appreciate the seriousness of authorities’ failure to maintain law and order on the Temple Mount.

Ariel explained, “the publicly available report is two pages out of more than 30 pages, some of which bear witness to the colossal failure of the authorities responsible for enforcing the law on the Temple Mount, the Attorney General, the Israel Police, the Israel Antiquities Authority, and the Jerusalem Municipality.
