Following the Sunday morning riots on the Temple Mount, police arrested Fatah official Khatem Abd al-Kader, as well as Ali Abu Sheikha of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, on charges of inciting to violence. Abd al-Kader, Jerusalem affairs advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, was arrested earlier in October after urging Muslims to violently "defend" the Aksa Mosque. He was banished for two weeks from the Old City area. In total, 15 Arabs were arrested on Sunday morning on suspicion of incitement, rioting and attacking security personnel.
