Police said to link Temple Mount clashes to postponement of Palestinian elections

Police believe the clashes on the Temple Mount are being led by Hamas operatives, and are linking the recent violence at the Jerusalem holy site to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s decision to indefinitely delay legislative elections that were scheduled for later this month, the Haaretz daily reports.
