Police use flashbangs against Palestinians at Al-Aqsa

July 2, 2012

Clashes broke out Friday between Israeli police and hundreds of Palestinian stone-throwers at the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. Police sources report that “dozens of people” barricaded themselves inside the Al-Aqsa mosque as well as the golden-topped Dome of the Rock.

Witnesses say police fired tear gas, forcing a number of women to run for cover inside the mosque.
