Rioting continues for 3rd straight night outside Temple Mount
Violent Palestinian protests against new Israeli security procedures at the gates of Jerusalem's Temple Mount continued late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning in the area of Lion's Gate. Two policemen sustained minor injuries from stones thrown at them. Meanwhile, in the neighborhood of Silwan, rioters threw stones and firebombs and shot fireworks at the security forces before being dispersed. Molotov cocktails were also thrown at security forces in the neighborhood of Isawiya.
Israel set up security checks including metal detectors at the gates of the Temple Mount after Friday's terrorist attack in which two members of the border police were murdered while guarding the Lion's Gate entrance.
