Cabinet decides: Metal detectors will be removed from Temple Mount  

The Security Cabinet decided on Monday night to remove the metal detectors from the Temple Mount.

In a statement, the Cabinet said it “accepted the recommendation of all of the security bodies to incorporate security measures based on advanced technologies (“smart checks”) and other measures instead of metal detectors in order to ensure the security of visitors and worshippers in the Old City and on the Temple Mount.”

Until the implementation of the plan, the Israel Police will reinforce its units and carry out additional actions as necessary in order to ensure the security of visitors on the Mount.

The Cabinet also decided to allocate a budget of up to 100 million shekels to implement the plan (over a time frame of up to six months) including an across-the-board cut as necessary, according to the plan to be presented by the Public Security Ministry.
