WATCH: Jews visit Temple Mount en masse on Tisha b’Av

As of 9 a.m. Sunday morning, over 1,000 Jews had visited the Temple Mount since the day began. Hundreds – among thousands more – are seen standing in line waiting for their turn.

Tisha b’Av is the Hebrew date of the anniversary of the destruction of both the first and second Holy Temples in Jerusalem. The Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site.
