An employee of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation was physically attacked by two men who purportedly wanted to bring women with them into the men’s section of the wall, the foundation says.

Workers at the holy site explained to the men that they could not be accompanied by women in the men’s section, the foundation says in a statement.

The men allegedly responded by hitting the employee in the face, who sought treatment at a hospital in Jerusalem. The men were arrested by the police, the foundation says.
