Israeli Police Attacked by Palestinians at Holy site

Monday, 27 June 2016 09:06 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say young masked Palestinians threw stones and shot fireworks at police officers at a contentious Jerusalem holy site revered by Muslims and Jews. No injuries were reported.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the Palestinians, who were holed up in the Al Aqsa Mosque, attacked officers with fireworks and rocks they had stockpiled inside the mosque.

He says police then locked the protesters in the mosque and opened the site to tourists and Jewish visitors. Later, protesters attacked police again. Police dispersed them using "riot-dispersal means."

Minor skirmishes erupted at the site on Sunday also.

Muslims refer to the site as the Noble Sanctuary, where the Prophet Muhammad embarked on his night journey. Jews refer to it as the Temple Mount, where Jewish temples stood in biblical times.
