Jews pray and march at the closed gates of the Temple Mount.

Saudi Arabia has asked the Arab League to discusses what it said was a move by “Israeli authorities” to change the names of the gates of Jerusalem to Hebrew, according to the Palestinian Authority’s official WAFA website.

The Arab League is scheduled to meet on Saturday at Sharm el-Sheikh.

Saudi Arabia presumably is referring to the locked gates around the Temple Mount, where Jews are barred from entering the Temple Mouton site.

Groups varying from several hundred to 3,000 people march and pray at the gates in the monthly “Sivuv Shay’arim” event, except when police decide they cannot do so because it would be considered as “incitement” for Muslims to riot, especially when the march coincides with the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
