JERUSALEM (JTA) — Police prevented dozens of protesting right-wing activists from ascending to the Temple Mount.
The activists on Thursday night were protesting the security situation in Jerusalem and the shooting last week of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick. The demonstrators marched from the Begin Center in Jerusalem, the site of the assassination attempt on Glick, to the Temple Mount entrance.
Earlier in the day, rioting broke out in the predominantly Arab eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods of Shuafat and Abu Tor.
Glick began regaining consciousness on Thursday.
