Israel police said a total of 25 Palestinians were arrested during clashes that took place over the course of the day Wednesday in and around Jerusalem.

National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that during a mid-day protest at the Nablus gate in Jerusalem, Palestinian rioters threw rocks and bottles at police, lightly wounding six Border Police and Israel police officers, three of whom had to be taken to hospitals in Jerusalem for treatment.

Police dispersed the riot using stun grenades, water cannons and mounted police, he added.

Rosenfeld said that later in the afternoon, a group of Palestinians began attacking Jews in the Old City, pushing and hitting them as they made their way to the Western Wall for Shavuot prayers. Police made six arrests during that incident, Rosenfeld said.
