Israeli police are restricting Jewish access to part of the Old City of Jerusalem, the Honenu legal aid organization said Friday afternoon, during the first intermediate day of the Passover festival.

Honenu claimed to have received multiple reports Friday from Orthodox Jews attempting to reach the Western Wall Plaza via Hagai Street that they have been denied entry by Border Police officers, while Arabs, non-Jewish tourists, and others who are not visibly Jewish were permitted to continue on their way.

Also known as Al Wad Street, Hagai Street runs north-to-south through the Muslim Quarter of the Old City, reaching the entrance of the Western Wall Plaza. The street is heavily used by haredi Jewish visitors from northern Jerusalem who visit the Western Wall by foot.
