Israel removes metal detectors Temple Mount

Israel retrieves the road metal detectors at the entrance of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

They are replaced by other "less intrusive technical means."

Israel placed the metal detectors after an attack at one of the entrances to the Temple Mount. The gates stood at the Palestinian side of the Temple Mount.

The arrival of the metal detectors caused unrest and riots among the Palestinian people. The Temple Mount with the Western Wall and the al-Aqsa Mosque is a holy place for Jews and Muslims.
