Clashes reported at Jerusalem’s Temple Mount after Hamas calls for ‘day of rage’

Riots and clashes are being reported in and around the Temple Mount flashpoint holy site, as Muslim worshipers end Friday prayers at its Al-Aqsa Mosque amid calls by the Hamas terror group for a “day of rage” in the capital.

Police reportedly entered the compound after rioters hurled rocks from inside the site, and are using riot control methods, including stun grenades, to quell the unrest.

Though Hamas has halted rocket fire to Israel as a ceasefire takes effect in Gaza, it is trying to keep the unrest going on in Jerusalem, where tensions over the Temple Mount and planned evictions of Palestinians in Shiekh Jarrah caused the fighting to erupt.
