Police in Jerusalem on Friday arrested two youths at the Majalas Gate, one of the entrances to the Temple Mount, after the two tried to force their way into the plaza.

As is typical during politically sensitive times when police fear the possibility of violence, Friday prayers were limited to men over age 50 with blue Israeli ID cards and women of any age.

Three youths were also arrested in Beit Hanina after they burned tires and threw rock at a patrol of border police. Another youth was also arrested for throwing rocks in Ras al Amud.
