A number of Arab youths attempted to break though a security barricade at the Temple Mount complex while others launched fireworks and stones toward security forces in the capital's Old City, following Friday morning prayers for Muslim worshipers.

Police and Border Police were using crowd dispersal means to control the scene.

The complex was reopened with limited entrance to men over the age of 50 on Friday, a day after it was closed to all visitors for the first time in 14 years. Women of all ages were permitted access to the site.
