Police Clash With Palestinians At Holy Site

Israeli police say officers scuffled with Palestinians who threw rocks from the most contentious holy site in Jerusalem. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said clashes erupted when hundreds of Palestinians exiting Friday prayers threw rocks at police officers stationed nearby. He said officers deployed non-lethal riot control gear. Police arrested four Palestinians and 11 officers were lightly hurt. The site is the location of the Two Botei Hamikdash and the future site of the 3rd Bies Hamikdash, but now it houses the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. Violence at the site in the past has erupted into deadly battles. "Shualim Hilchu Bo."
