Rare footage of the Temple Mount in 1967



There is a better version of this clip online, but it cuts off halfway through.

Some points of interest in the clip:
0:05: Entering the Old City via Lion's Gate
0:17: Paratrooper commander Motta Gur announcing that the 'Temple Mount is in our hands'
0:52: Rabbi Goren in the Dome of the Rock, holding a Torah scroll and shofar
0:57: Motta Gur organized an official ceremony on the Temple Mount
1:10: The soldiers reach the Western Wall
