Israel Police: We won’t tolerate security threats on Temple Mount #RoshHashanah

The commander of the Israel Police said Sunday that the force would not tolerate any efforts to harm human life, in particular on the Temple Mount, a flashpoint site holy to Jews and Muslims that had seen clashes earlier in the day.

He was speaking after police discovered pipe bombs during what they said was a preemptive operation at the Mount as Israel geared up to celebrate the Jewish new year.

“Israel Police will not allow any harm to public security or the sovereignty of the state in general, and at its capital or the Temple Mount in particular,” said interim police chief Bentzi Sau in a statement published on Facebook.
