Clashes on the Temple Mount

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Arab youths clashes with Israel Police officers Tuesday morning on the Temple Mount, hurling rocks at the security forces in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Police used routine riot control methods to disperse the mob, according to police officials and did not close the complex to visitors, in a departure from past practices.

No one was injured in the incident, and officials said the Temple Mount remained open to visitors for the time being.

In the past, radical Islamists have used rock throwing and other rioting methods as a means of preventing Jews and other tourists from gaining entry to the area, thus retaining exclusive access to the site.
