Muslim protesters clash with police in Jerusalem

Location: Jerusalem , Israel
July 21, 2017

A Palestinians man is pushed off the street by an Israeli Border Policewoman as security forces on horseback scatter worshippers amid stun grenades thrown when clashes broke out following a mass Friday prayer on the street near the Old City walls of Jerusalem in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi Jos, 21 July 2017. Israel’s security cabinet decided not to dismantle the new security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Islamic authorities of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, including the mufti of Jerusalem, called on Palestinian Muslims not to go through the electronic gates installed by the Israeli police and rejected all procedures that change the historic situation of the mosque. Israel authorities installed metal detectors at the entrance to the al-Aqsa compound after a shooting attack carried by Israeli Arab on 14 July against Israeli police at the al-Aqsa compound, killing two Israeli policemen and the three attackers.
