Palestinians again took to the Temple Mount early Tuesday to riot, this time with severe consequences. The Jerusalem Post reports that rioters threw a Molotov cocktail at Israeli police who were trying to disperse the crowd, seriously injuring one Israeli officer:
The Jerusalem Police closed all entrances to the Temple Mount on Tuesday after Palestinians reportedly threw a Molotov cocktail at a police outpost on the compound...
The policemen ordered all worshipers to leave the compound. Eyewitnesses said scuffles broke out between the police and scores of Palestinians.
The incident took place a day after Interior Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan vowed that there will be "no second mosque on the Temple Mount" and said that, "God willing" Jews will be able to pray there freely "in the future..."
