How Terrorists Got Guns onto Temple Mount

Last week’s terror attack on the Temple Mount was surprising in that violence had, until then, not visited the holy site. But that all changed when the terrorists snuck guns into the Al-Aqsa mosque, which they used to gun down two Israeli policemen. The Times of Israel’s Alexander Fulbright reports that the IDF has released video showing how the murderers carried out their attack:

In the security camera footage, the three Arab-Israeli gunmen — Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29; Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19 and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19 — can be seen arriving in Jerusalem from their hometown of Umm al-Fahm by bus before separately entering the Old City of Jerusalem through Herod’s Gate. They proceeded to enter the Temple Mount through the Huta Gate.

At the gate, one of the attackers was stopped and questioned after apparently arousing the suspicion of a police officer before being eventually allowed to enter the site.

The video also shows that the three attackers had an accomplice, an unidentified fourth individual, who brought the guns in a backpack onto the Temple Mount and left them in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Channel 2 reported that the accomplice has been arrested…
