Israel decided not to limit Ramadan prayers on the Temple Mount after Muslim authorities secured a precarious wall at the site. As many as 250,000 worshipers are expected to attend prayers at the Temple Mount on Friday for the opening of the monthlong Islamic fast holiday. Israeli authorities, noting that a mosque on the mount known as Solomon’s Stables had a wall that was in danger of collapsing, had threatened to limit the number of worshipers to 60,000.
