The Western Wall (Kotel)
In order to secure Vice President Pence’s visit to the Western Wall on Tuesday, the Israeli Police closed off the Western Wall and its surroundings to both vehicles and pedestrians for four hours. In an unprecedented move, Amit Branchuk, the police officer in charge of the Temple Mount entrance, went around to the roadblocks and personally accompanied any Jew who wanted to ascend the Temple Mount at that time.
