Two members of Israel’s Knesset legislature ascended Jerusalem’s Temple Mount Tuesday, in the first such visit to the holy site by Israeli politicians since a ban on the practice was imposed in October 2015 by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The visits by Members of Knesset Yehudah Glick (Likud) and Shuli Moalem-Refaeli (Jewish Home) were part of a one-day “trial” enacted in light of an improved security situation at the Temple Mount since the July 14 terror attack in which three Arab terrorists killed two Israeli policemen near the holy site.
