A young Israeli woman walked naked through the women’s section of the Western Wall plaza for several seconds before being stopped and taken to a nearby bathroom. After she was covered, the woman was taken to the David District Police Station in Jerusalem where she was questioned.

An eyewitness who documented the incident told Channel 2 News Online: "She walked in dressed but at a certain point stripped naked and became the focus of attention as if she was looking to provoke," said the witness. "People began to scream and cry and when she began moving towards the men's section, she was forcefully arrested.”
