More Palestinians-Israeli police clashes in and outside Jerusalem

Scores of Palestinians hurled rocks and bottles at police at the Lion’s Gate entrance to Temple Mount Saturday night, where eight days ago, three terrorists gunned down two Israeli police officers. Outbreaks of this kind were repeated on a smaller scale by protesters against the metal detectors in the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Issawiyeh, A-Tur, Shuafat, Mount of Olives, Ras el-Amud and the road to Maaleh Adummim. Police broke up the mobs with water cannon, tear gas and outside Temple Mount mounted on horses. An IDF officer was injured by a rock thrown by Palestinian rioters at Kfar Qaddum in Samaria.
In the Israeli towns of Nazareth and Qalansweh, local Arabs echoed the Palestinian protesters and vowed to continue “the struggle without pause.”
