The latest attack at the holy site follows the arrest of about 30 Arabs over Rosh Hashanah weekend for riots that broke out in and around the Temple Mount compound on Sept. 4 and Sept. 6.

The police arrived for the patrol after receiving intelligence indicating the possibility of a stone-throwing attack from one of the mosques at the holy site, Israel National News reported. The patrolling police force was attacked precisely in the way predicted by the intelligence report.

The police dispersed several dozen Arab youths who were throwing stones and rioting, while others ran into a nearby mosque. Three police officers were injured in the clash. Two were treated on the spot and a third was evacuated for further treatment.

Police arrested two of the rioters on suspicion of public disorder, and a third person on suspicion of inciting public disorder.
