Dozens of people detained during riots in Jerusalem
During the dispersal of the parishioners, six police officers were injured, as well as about 200 Palestinians. Dozens of rioters were detained.
“At the end of the prayer on the Temple Mount, thousands of parishioners began throwing stones and launching fireworks at the police. Israeli police are operating at the scene, and six police officers have been injured so far during the riots,” the statement said.
It is indicated that at first the parishioners were asked to disperse peacefully, but they ignored the call. Then the police, in pursuance of an order to disperse the rioters, were forced to use special means to disperse the crowd.
During the operation, dozens of Palestinians were detained.

In addition, more than 200 police officers stormed the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa mosque and covered prayer halls, as well as forcibly forced believers to leave the mosque, the agency writes.
Recall, on the night of April 23 clashes also occurred in East Jerusalem between extreme right-wing Jewish activists, Palestinians and the Israeli police. At the time, at least 100 Palestinians were injured.
