Reacting to clashes between police and Palestinian rioters on the Temple Mount Sunday morning, Avigdor Liberman was quick to criticize Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that it is his "responsibility to instruct the police and security forces to see an end to the Arab rioting on the Temple Mount."

"Jews arriving at the [Western Wall] to mark Tisha B'av should be allowed to do so in a fitting way,"

Chaos gripped the Temple Mount Sunday morning after masked Palestinians hurled stones and shot fireworks at police officers who received information that a potential riot had been planned throughout the night.

The Palestinians amassed stones, wooden planks, fireworks and prepared petrol bombs inside the al-Aqsa mosque and targeted officers and members of the Border Police as they organized themselves in the stairwells leading up to the surrounding plaza.

"Today's events are the results of the government weak policies in the face of recent terror incidents in Jerusalem which embolden the Arabs and the rioters to continue escalating their activities," the Yisrael Beitenu Chairman went on to say.
