About 20 masked Palestinians hurled stones at police forces at the Mughrabi Bridge at the end of Friday prayers on the Temple Mount.



Police forces managed to push the masked men into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, restored calm to the area and the dispersion of the worshippers from the complex continued as normal.


Eight of the stone throwers have been arrested.

Clashes on Temple Mount

Two weeks ago, the Temple Mount was closed for visitors following rioting of masked Palestinians, who were throwing stones at policeman and civilians and barricaded themselves in the Al-Aqsa mosque. One policeman was lightly wounded from a stone that hit him. The incident occurred a day before Jerusalem Day, that went on as normal despite tensions.


Early June, the Jordanian government protested to the Israeli Foreign Ministry the fact Muslim worshippers were prevented from entering the Temple Mount complex. The Jordanian Foreign Ministry said Israel must take the necessary steps to stop the violation of worshippers' rights.
