MK Itamar Ben Gvir (Otzma Yehudit) and some 2,200 other Israelis visited the Temple Mount on Sunday as part of Tisha Be'av, amid concerns that the visits may lead to an escalation of Operation Breaking Dawn and force Hamas to join the fighting, which it has refrained to do until now. Tisha Be'av is a Jewish fast day that commemorates disasters that occurred throughout Jewish history, mainly the destruction of the two Temples in Jerusalem.
