Monday, April 20, 2015, 15:24 An IDF soldier was detained on the afternoon of Monday,
April 20 on the Temple Mount for allegedly bowing a slight bow. According to the police, at the exit from the Temple Mount the soldier walked backwards, facing the site of the Holy Temple and bowed a slight bow, in the manner in which Jews are accustomed to leave a synagogue and other holy places.
The soldier was taken to a police station adjacent to the Temple Mount. Honenu attorney Rehavia Piltz hurried to the station in order to work towards the release of the soldier.
Honenu: “The detention of an IDF soldier because he dared to honor the site of the Holy Temple is a disgrace. The fact that a detention such as this was carried out on the eve of Israeli Independence Day is a badge of shame for the State of Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, the capital city.”
