Palestinian medics prepare for violent clashes in Jerusalem

The Palestinian Red Crescent has set up mobile clinics in East Jerusalem in preparation for potentially violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces after this afternoon’s prayers at the Temple Mount.

Large numbers of Israeli security forces are deployed throughout the capital, and police earlier barred men under the age of 50 from entering the Temple Mount for Friday prayers over concerns of violence protests.

Heavy clashes in the capital and West Bank last weekend left five Palestinians dead and saw a Palestinian terrorist stab to death three Israelis at their Shabbat meal in a West Bank settlement.
