Police and Border Guard officers used crowd-control measures to disperse the crowd. No injuries were reported. The police are canvassing the area for the incident’s instigators.

The police said visits to Temple Mount were undisturbed by the incident.

Friday’s stoning followed a similar event that took place on Thursday.

Police forces arrested three right-wing activists who were trying to enter Temple Mount after the compound was closed for the day.

Several Arab worshipers that were on the premises stoned police forces, causing no harm.
