Clashes erupt at mosque in Jerusalem
Israeli police clashed with Palestinian youths in and around the al-Aqsa compound on Wednesday October 8, driving protesters into a mosque from where they continued to throw stones and Molotov cocktails, Israeli police and Palestinian officials said. Shortly after the clashes, the worshippers were evacuated from the site and Israeli police were seen patrolling the al-Aqsa plaza that was littered with broken chairs and other objects.
Palestinians said Israeli officers attacked some worshippers and at least one man was wounded. They added that tear gas was used to drive away Palestinians who gathered outside the mosque.
