Police clashed with ‘Palestinians’ on the Temple Mount once again Tuesday morning…Â as soon as the Mughrabi Gate leading to the Mount was opened.
Police clashed with dozens of Palestinian youths at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem who threw rocks and fireworks at them following the opening of the Mughrabi gate. Some of the men wore masks, according to police.
Three young men were arrested, while the rest were dispersed by a stun grenade thrown by police. According to Palestinian media, several of the youths were injured. The Israel Police said no Palestinians were injured.Â (Carl in J’lem)
