Hundreds of Arabs attacked police with stones following Friday prayers on the Temple Mount.
In response, more police then entered the Temple Mount via the Mughrabi Gate (the bridge to the right of the Kotel) and tried to disperse the mob with stun grenades. No one was injured, or arrested, but the police have said they will find and arrest the stone throwers.
Arabs have been rioting, assaulting Jews, and threatening larger scale violence and attacks over the past week on the Temple Mount.
During past holidays, Arabs have thrown stones down onto the Jewish worshipers praying at the Kotel below the Temple Mount.
