Eight Palestinians arrested after Temple Mount clash


(JTA) — Eight Palestinians were arrested after rioting on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Masked Palestinians began throwing stones at Israeli police by the Mughrabi Bridge Friday after prayers at Al-Aksa mosque.

“Police quickly responded and entered the Temple Mount using non-lethal stun grenades to disperse the crowd,” Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told The Jerusalem Post.
