Following the report that Jews will be allowed to enter the Temple Mount for Jerusalem Day, riots broke out on the Temple Mount on Sunday, according to the Police Spokesperson’s Unit.
Jews are generally forbidden to enter the compound during the last days of the month of Ramadan. The police, however, allowed the entrance of Jews especially for Jerusalem Day.
As the police attempted to enter the place, Arab worshipers began throwing stones, chairs and other objects at the forces.
After the riots subsided, Jews slowly began entering the area.
Muslims rioted on the Temple Mount on Sunday morning as Jews visited the Holy compound in honor of Jerusalem Day, celebrating the 52nd anniversary of the liberation of the city during the 1967 Six Day War.
The rioters threw rocks and chairs at Israeli forces, who responded by streaming enforcements into the compound and gaining control of the situation.
Five rioters were arrested and one Waqf guard was reportedly injured.
The police have estimated that the Muslims will attempt to disturb the Israeli celebrations during Jerusalem Day and have deployed accordingly.
The Jewish visitations to the site are continuing and hundreds have already toured the holy site.
The Jews built the place. muslims have squatted on it for a while.
The Jews have a higher priority claim than the death-cult faction.
A very contentious on-going situation, sure to lead even worse events.
