Two Border Police officers were lightly injured in clashes with Arab youths at the Temple Mount on Sunday morning.

The rioters threw fireworks and rocks at security forces upon the opening of the mount to Jewish worshipers. Police responded with riot dispersal measures.

Police arrested 24 people for disturbing the peace.

The Temple Mount was again closed to visitors following the disturbance.

Prior to the closing of the facilities Moshe Feiglin and hundreds of Jewish tourists visited the mount.

The disturbances followed similar violence on Wednesday at the holy site.
