Hundreds of Jordanian men and women took to the streets of the capital city Amman in support of a "day of rage" planned in the Palestinian territories on Friday.

Protests had been planned in the West Bank against what many Palestinians feel is Israeli encroachment on Al-Aksa mosque in Jerusalem.

Masked rock-throwing Palestinians and Israeli police using stun grenades clashed on Sunday at Al-Aksa mosque plaza, on the annual Jewish day of mourning for Jerusalem's two destroyed Biblical temples.

No serious injuries were reported at the site, which lies in the Old City and is revered by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and by Jews as the Temple Mount where two temples once stood.

Violence at the site has flared in the past year as Palestinians have been riled by visits by non-Muslims, including ultranationalist Jews, to the compound.
