Masked jihadists hold stones as they gesture during 2016 clashes with Israeli police during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan near Al-Aqsa mosque (seen in background) on the Temple Mount compound. An Israeli police spokesperson said the compound would be closed to visitors, including Jewish visitors, for three days in response to clashes. During the clashes jihadists threw stones at Israeli police officers.

Ten Jerusalem Arab residents were arrested in the past week on suspicion of participating in violent attacks on Israeli police forces outside the Temple Mount compound.

Six of the ten were arrested for hurling rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at police.
