Posted: 14-Jul-2017 by Maccabiah

No Australians were involved in Jerusalem after a terrorist shot at police by the Lion's Gate near the entrance of the Temple Mount on Friday morning.

Three Israelis are injured, two critically, while the terrorists were shot dead.

After consultation with authorities, Maccabi Australia has instructed all athletes and members of our delegation not to travel to the Old City - including the kottel - until further advice is given. All Australian delegation members are reminded they are bound by the Code of Conduct.
