No Secret Temple Mount Rules

Arutz 7 reports:

Police detained a Jew, Thursday, for breaking its "secret" rules on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, according to students of the Har Bracha yeshiva who visited the holy site. He was the fourth person so detained in the last 11 day. Two people were arrested on the eve of Rosh Hashannah on claims by police that they were praying. Two days ago, on the eve of Yom Kippur, police claimed a 21-year-old prostrated himself. Thursday's violation was not specified.

Are those "rules" actually secret?

Here they are:

Rule #3 reads "prohibited is any external or demonstrative form of religious worship".  If one is in doubt, a policeman must be asked prior to the action.

Rule # 5 reads that any "provocative action is prohibited".

Those rules are those Yehuda Glick had to sign off on in order to ascend to the Mount back in January 2010.
