In recent months, a number of women have been arrested for donning prayer shawls at Judaism’s most holy site. [JTA]

• In another star defection, Syria’s military police chief has joined the rebels. Behind the scenes, there are a number of reports that suggest Syrian dictator Bashar Assad is looking for ways to leave. [BBC]

• Israeli experts have come out against the claim made by the National Rifle Association that Israel’s successful approach to gun control should encourage Americans to buy more guns. [AP]
