The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) in collaboration with the Jerusalem police, arrested a Hamas-associated terror cell they said was responsible for a series of violent incidents at the Temple Mount after Friday prayers on March 8th, including the throwing of Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli security forces.

During the clashes, nine officers were hurt, the ISA said Sunday.

The ISA said that all five suspects are "identified" with Hamas, and most of them live in the Shuafat refugee camp.

The ISA said that under interrogation all five suspects confessed to taking part in the planning and carrying out of the use of the Molotov cocktails on Israeli security forces at the Temple Mount.
