A picture of a tent city erected on the Temple Mount has gone viral on social media in Israel.

The image, caught by Israel365 News‘ Josh Wander, shows a tent city adjacent to the Al-Aksa Mosque on the holy site. The mosque has been used as a headquarters for hundreds of Arab rioters who have attacked Israeli police since the beginning of Ramadan earlier this month.

It appears as though the tent city is being used to house the rioters during Ramadan, giving easy access to the mosque that they have essentially transformed into a makeshift fortress.

Earlier in April, Israel365 News reported that Arab rioters in the Al-Aksa Mosque desecrated the mosque by using it as a fortress for rioting, leaving their shoes on and playing soccer inside the structure. The video enraged many in the Arab world.
