Police: Muslims riot, hurl rocks on Temple Mount, disperse after cops briefly enter

Police say that after the Muslim morning prayers today at the Temple Mount, hundreds of people began chanting inciting slogans and that at one point, masked rioters started hurling rocks toward the Mughrabi Gate, from where Jews and tourists are allowed to enter the compound on weekdays — but not on Fridays.

Police say one of the rocks almost hit a Muslim woman, who fell over as a result.

Police entered several meters into the Temple Mount compound through the gate, and the rioters dispersed immediately without any need for the use of force, police added.

Police published footage from the incident, including of the rioters gathering rocks.
