Police used stun grenades to disperse the rioters.

The police subsequently closed the Temple Mount was closed to all visitors.

  1. If Putin was the PM in Israel, I wonder what his reaction would be to incidents like this.Guy may be a thug, but he does not tolerate this type of incident in any way, form or manner.Of course, then the world would vilify Israel, as usual.

  2. It is about t time the Israel gov. herd the provoking Palestinians up and send them over to Hamas and let them enjoy their so-called freedom there.Those involved ; their families should be refrained from receiving welfare handouts as a penalty for not controlling their gangster kids.
