Amid Jerusalem unrest, Temple Mount said closed to Jewish visitors

The Temple Mount will be closed to Jewish visitors until further notice, amid unrest in the capital, Army Radio reports.

The reported move comes as Muslims celebrate the month-long Ramadan holiday.

Palestinians have clashed with Israeli security forces in recent weeks around the Old City.
