208168_345x230JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli police imposed restrictions on Palestinian worshipers on Friday, banning Muslims under the age of 50 from entering the holy site.

A police spokeswoman said women of all ages would be allowed to enter the compound as well as men above 50.

The spokeswoman, Luba al-Sumri, said that the restrictions would help maintain order after clashes at the site during visits from right-wing Israelis worshipers.

Police deployed at gates leading to the mosque in the Old City and scrutinized IDs starting Thursday.
