Sunday, February 19th, 2012

AFP reports that Israeli police said they arrested three Palestinians on Sunday on the grounds of the historic Temple Mount, current site of the Al-Aqsa mosque complex in Jerusalem, after tourists visiting the site as well as police were stoned.

“Stones were thrown at tourists and police officers, police have made three arrests … three suspects involved in throwing stones,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP. “The situation is calm at present,” he said.

He said he did not know the cause of the incident.

“It’s not clear, it’s something that’s being looked into,” he said, adding that nobody was injured.
