Two thousand policemen and Border Policemen were deployed in Jerusalem on Friday morning ahead of the Muslim prayers later in the day.

Security forces were guarding areas where clashes have occurred in the past, such as the Temple Mount, the Old City and east Jerusalem.

In an effort to prevent rioting from occurring, police have limited entrance to the Al-Aksa Mosque to Muslim men over the age of 50 who possess Israeli ID cards. Muslim women of all ages will be permitted to enter the site.
