Masked Palestinians have hurled rocks at Israeli police and burned tires in east Jerusalem.

Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said police fired stun grenades to disperse dozens of protesters at one site. He said village elders helped end protests at another site.

No injuries were reported.

Police presence is high after Hamas militants called for a "day of rage" against Israel following its rededication of the Hurva synagogue in the Old City.
