Dozens injured, hospitalized in clash between police, worshippers at Islamic mosque
Shots exchanged between Palestinians, Israeli troops
Dozens were injured amid unrest at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on Friday night, part of an ongoing series of violent incidents in the area that have sprung up in recent weeks.
Over 50 people reportedly suffered injuries as protesters and Israeli police clashed. Police allegedly deployed rubber bullets and stun grenades. There were also reportedly shots exchanged between protesters and Israeli troops.
Nearly two dozen of those injuries resulted in hospitalizations.
The al-Aqsa site also serves as the holiest location in Judaism—the Temple Mount, where the first Jewish Temple is said to have been constructed and the second was built before its destruction in 70 A.D.
