    Of the 476 detainees from Friday's clashes, 130 have been imprisoned, and the rest have either been released or put in extended detention. 65 minors were banned from entering Temple Mount, and were to be released under certain restrictions, like many of the others taken into custody.
    On Sunday, Palestinians clashed with police forces on Temple Mount after the forces entered the mosque compound to remove makeshift barriers and piles of stones prepared for riots. At least two were arrested and at least nine others were injured.
