A clash occurred between Muslims and police officers who gathered on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This was reported by the Jerusalem Post news agency.

The clash with the police occurred after Muslims came into conflict with the Jews at the entrance to the Temple Mount.

During Islamic holidays, the Temple Mount is closed for non-Muslim visitors. But this year, Eid al-Adha coincided with the Ninth of Av, the national day of mourning for the Jewish people - the day when the First and Second Jerusalem churches were destroyed.

Jewish organizations turned to the authorities to provide them with access to the shrine. However, for security reasons, the police banned the Jews from entering the Temple Mount, where 80,000 Muslims celebrate their holiday.
 


Also, the Muslims who gathered on the Temple Mount were urged not to disperse and not to allow the Jews to enter the territory of the shrine. Hamas Spokesman Hazem Qasem congratulated the Muslim worshipers who participated in "fending off the settlers at the Temple Mount," and called on every Palestinian who can "come to Jerusalem and defend the al-Aqsa Mosque." After this, there were clashes between Muslims and Jews, who came to the entrance. Then the police intervened in the riots.

We recall that today, Muslims around the world celebrate  Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice.
