Arab attackers hurled rocks from the Temple Mount compound at visitors touring the Davidson Center archaeological garden next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem after the conclusion of prayers on Friday at the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Israel Police who were at the scene arrested two suspects in the attack, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 military website. No one was physically injured in the attack.
Muslim clerics at the Al Aqsa Mosque typically deliver sermons geared towards inciting worshipers into carrying out violent activity aimed at non-Muslim visitors to the Temple Mount and the nearby Western Wall, which together comprise one of the holiest sites in the Jewish faith.
Stone-throwing is one of the preferred methods of attack by rioting Arab mobs, especially at the Temple Mount. The Al-Aqsa mosque has for years been used to stockpile large quantities of rocks that can be provided to those who wish murder non-Muslims at a moment’s notice.
