The police stormed into the Temple Mount in response to stone throwing at police and Jewish visitors. Security forces under District Commander Yossi Pariente scattered the throwers, some wearing masks. No injuries or damage were reported. The stone throwers fled to the mosque. Police said Waqf members have prevented further stone throwing.
At the same time, on the road to Jerusalem, police stopped dozens of buses carrying Arab worshipers who were on their way to the Temple Mount. Police turned them around, due to their intention to cause disturbances at the Temple Mount. (Noam Dvir)
