On Thursday, Israeli police and stone-throwing Palestinians clashed at a contested shrine in Jerusalem as it reopened 11 days after security installations sparked a Muslim prayer boycott and increased tensions between the two sides.
“The Old City complex, known as Haram al-Sharif to Muslims and Temple Mount to Jews, reopened in East Jerusalem after Israeli officials removed all security devices from the entrance of the site. Israel had installed the new security measures after a Palestinian terrorist shot and killed two Israeli police officers from within the shrine on July 14.
On Thursday, Muslim leaders urged worshipers to return to the site, but the reopening took a violent turn when Palestinians threw stones at Israeli officers stationed at the entrance gates. Israeli police retaliated by firing tear gas and rubber bullets. The violence escalated when troops closed the gates to the compound.”
At least 37 Palestinians were injured by rubber bullets and beatings. Several people also reportedly suffered broken bones.
