Clashes between Israelis and Palestinians have been reported at a holy site in Jerusalem. According to Christian Today, Palestinians at Temple Mount threw stones and firecrackers at Israeli security forces. 


The scene became chaotic and policemen used stun grenades to control the crowd. Twenty people were reportedly wounded in the incident. 


Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, "Police entered the area, pushed the masked rioters back, and they fled back into al Aqsa. Police closed the front gate of the mosque but did not enter.”


Other clashes have been reported recently between Israeli security forces and Palestinians; the clashes have sparked fears of another Palestinian uprising.
