JNS.orgSeveral dozen Muslim worshippers clashed with Israeli security forces on the Temple Mount on Tuesday morning, throwing stones and firecrackers at forces routinely deployed in and around the compound, Israel Hayom reported.

Two policemen sustained mild injuries, and three rioters were arrested. The compound remained open to visitors throughout the incident.

The riot erupted ahead of Tuesday’s Knesset plenum debate on Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Member of Knesset Moshe Feiglin (Likud) called for the session.
