Palestinian rioters wreaking havoc on the Temple Mount

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” Psalm 122:6

Tens of thousands of people attended Friday the funeral of slain Arab teenager Muhammed Abu Khdeir, whose body was found in a Jerusalem forest Wednesday morning, as Palestinian rioting continued for a third straight day in the capital in response to the alleged revenge killing.

As the funeral took place, riots broke out in several locations throughout the capital, with hundreds of Arab youths hurling stones and makeshift Molotov cocktails at police officers. Police blocked all the roads leading from East Jerusalem neighborhood’s to the city’s western half.

Masked protesters hurled rocks at police near the site of the funeral as well. Fifteen demonstrators were lightly injured after security forces fired tear gas back at them, police said. Bystanders also reported shots being fired in the air by masked gunman. Police were investigating the reports, according to Walla.

In anticipation of unrest Friday, which was also the first Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Border Police in the city had increased their preparedness in Jerusalem, bringing in reinforcements, and limiting access to the Temple Mount to Muslim men 50 years and over, as well as all women.

The police precautions came after two days of clashes between East Jerusalem residents and Border Police officers as tensions escalated sharply surrounding Israeli calls for revenge against Arabs for the killing of the three teens.

Earlier Friday, clashes broke out between Arab youths and police around the Temple Mount complex. Blasts from stun grenades were heard from the site of the turmoil, as dozens of demonstrators tried to breach a police barrier at an entrance to the compound.

Clashes also broke out in the Ras-al-Amoud neighborhood on the Mount of Olives.

In the West Bank city of Ramallah, Palestinians reportedly hurled stones at IDF soldiers in three different locations. IDF responded both with live fire and rubber bullets, according to Haaretz. Eight Palestinians were reported injured during the clashes, including one who was shot with live ammunition, the IDF said. source – Times of Israel
