Palestinians, Israel Police Clash at Jerusalem Old City Gate

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 10:38 AM EDT

JERUSALEM (AP) — Clashes have broken out between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces as Israeli demonstrators march through the Old City of Jerusalem to mark the 50th anniversary of Israel's capture of the city's eastern half.

Several dozen young Israeli men, some holding Israeli flags, were marching through the Old City's Damascus Gate on their way to the Western Wall on Wednesday when they encountered a group of Palestinian protesters.

Israeli forces moved in, and clashes ensued with the Palestinian protesters. No injuries were reported.

Earlier Wednesday, police arrested two Islamic Waqf guards who allegedly assaulted a group of Israelis who entered a contested Jerusalem shrine. The site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, is holy to both faiths.
