Masked Arab youths threw stones and fireworks at police forces at the Mughrabi Bridge as the Temple Mount compound opened for visitors Monday morning. The rioters also set up blockades at both entrances to the Al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent police from closing the doors. Local police, Israel Police special patrol unit officers, and Border Guard officers eventually managed to break in and arrest the masked protestors inside the mosque.
Five officers were lightly wounded during the incident and received treatment at the scene. The police said that the situation in the Temple Mount is under control.
