25 Protesters, Policeman Wounded in Temple Mount Riot

reposted from Times of Israel
April 16, 2014

Masked assailants throw stones and firecrackers, barricade themselves in Jerusalem compound; site closed to public

A policeman was lightly injured Wednesday morning on the Temple Mount as dozens of masked Palestinian rioters hurled stones and firecrackers. Palestinians said twenty-five protesters were injured.

The incident occurred as the site was being opened to Muslim visitors.

The demonstrators barricaded themselves in the mosque compound and police responded with riot control measures.

The entrance to the site was closed following the disturbances.

Riots on the Temple Mount are not uncommon, and often accompany political tension or visits by Israeli right-wing activists.

On Sunday, riot police were called in to quell a violent protest at the Temple Mountís Mughrabi gate as the site opened to visitors in the morning.

Two police were lightly injured and law enforcement entered the al-Aqsa mosque compound and used stun grenades and rubber bullets to disperse the rioters.

Five Jewish Israelis were arrested Monday after allegedly attempting to sacrifice a goat at the Temple Mount in honor of the Passover holiday.
