Latest Update: 02.24.12

Friday prayers at Jerusalem's Temple Mount turned into a scene of violent riots as protesters hurled stones at security forces who in turn broke into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound. Police dispersed the protesters using stun grenades. Eleven officers were lightly wounded by stones and treated at the scene. Four rioters were arrested.



Left-wing activists said that about 15 Palestinians were lightly hurt by the crowd-control measures used by security forces.







Hundreds of Muslim worshippers at the Mughrabi Gate hurled stones at police and Border Guard forces who raided the compound to evacuate them. Dozens initially refused to leave the mosque but later cleared out on their own accord. Police say further arrests are expected.






Following the Temple Mounts riot, similar unrest was recorded in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, Isawiya and Ras al-Amoud, as well as near the Qalandiya checkpoint.



Security forces in each of the locations suffered stoning and the hurling of Molotov cocktails. The forces responded using crowd-control measures.







Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Hussein of the al-Aqsa mosque said: "We demand that no settlers, radicals or soldiers enter the mosque to avoid friction." He claimed that the Israeli government was responsible for the situation and will "bear the consequences."







Jerusalem District chief Nisso Shaham told reporters that the riots broke out after a right-wing activist posted online ads calling to "cleanse the Arabs from the al-Aqsa Mosque." He said Friday's events were the climax of riots in the past two weeks.



Shaham was referring to an ad announcing a future Temple Mount visit by Moshe Feiglin and his supporters. Fearing riots police closed the area to Jewish visitors.







On Thursday, Jerusalem Police declared a heightened state of alert at the Old City due to mounting tensions over calls by right-wing elements and members of the Temple Mount Faithful group to visit the site.



"This time it was decided not to restrict entry to the Temple Mount so as not to harm the freedom of religion," Shaham said.



Several cases of stone throwing were recorded in the Old City in the past week. The first incident saw police arrest 18 protesters suspected of rioting after hurling chairs at security forces. Several days later, an officer was injured when Arabs hurled stones at him. Police arrested three suspects.







Also on Friday, some 400 Palestinians and Israelis staged a march in the West Bank city of Hebron, marking the 18th anniversary of the Cave of the Patriarchs massacre.





The 1994 shooting saw a lone gunman, far-right Kach movement member Baruch Goldstein, open fire on Muslims praying inside the Ibrahim Mosque. Twenty-nine worshippers were killed and 125 were wounded.



No unusual incidents were noted during the march.

      because Palestinians were throwing rocks at right wing zionists who wanted to "cleanse" the arabs from Jerusalem.....seems to me the Palis were protecting themselves and the IDF should have been going after the right wingers for instigating violence

    • @OnlyLiarsBlock - the Muslims have done this many times at the Temple Mount in response to perceived "threats" that don't exist. The Israeli security forces do not allow religious Jews to even blink in a way that might look like prayer or other "instigation" on the Mount.

      Not exactly- you got it wrong.

      The riots were a response to a radical rightist guy which published over the Internet ads calling to empty Al aqsa mosque from Arabs (which they consider as Jewish).

      He is an idiot but not a less idiot then many from here (LL),for example, who call all sort of racist and ugly calls.

      Imagine now that all of these liveleakers will be arrested for what they say, or that riots will begin every time some smart ass say a stupid thing...lol!

      There were riots also today (this is what the item is all about), but couldn't find any video.

      What you see in the video is more or less the same as most of other such riots in Jerusalem, including of today...

  • So this is the Right wing zionists fault. They know they were doing somethign that was going to cause riots and friction. they should be charged. or better yet held without charge since Israel loves doing that to Palestinians....and Israel is a free and democratic country they should have the same punishment for the right wing zionists. Did IDF raid any of their locations and arrest them for instigating riots.

      whats funny is American politicians were praising the "Arab Spring" protesters and ready to invade those countries because the ppl were being arrested and killed by the militaries. yet here in America they are doing the same thing...arresting protesters, charging them, and putting them on terrorist watch lists. so does that mean canada or mexico is allowed to come in and take over the US Govnt and put who they want in place?
