Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli police next to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount complex on Friday after Muslim prayers at the al-Aqsa Mosque.

According to Ynet, members of the Islamic Waqf, the administrators of the complex holy to Jews and Muslims, prevented additional stones from being thrown and took the young Palestinians who were involved into the mosque.

Israeli authorities arrested two minors suspected of taking part in the attacks.

No injuries or damage were reported, police said.

The Temple Mount as it’s known to Jews, or Noble Sanctuary to Muslims, is the site of the Jewish temples in Jerusalem, and the location where Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.
