About 20 Israeli tourists were temporarily detained by Jordanian police and threatened with imprisonment Monday at a hotel near Petra.

The group was in Jordan to visit the grave of the biblical high priest Aaron, the brother of Moses, who died at Mount Hor, which is located in modern-day Jordan. Monday was the first day of the Hebrew month Av, the anniversary of Aaron’s death.
