Police Quell Temple Mount Riots

02/24/2012

(JTA) -- Police dispersed Muslim rioters on the Temple Mount who apparently had been spurred by reports that Jewish extremists planned to enter the site.

Reports said the rioters, among the Friday worshippers at the site's mosques, hurled rocks at the Mughrabi Bridge entrance, prompting a rare incursion by police, who used stun grenades.

At least 11 police and 15 rioters were hurt and four Palestinians were arrested.

An Israeli baby sustained a head injury as Palestinians clashed with Israeli soldiers ahead of the Palestinians' imminent statehood bid at the United Nations.

The 16-month-old girl was hit in the head with a rock during the Palestinian riots late Wednesday afternoon in the northern West Bank. She was rushed to a hospital in Petach Tikvah.

Gunshots were fired at a car traveling near the northern West Bank community of Karnei Shomron. Bullet holes were discovered in the car; no one was injured.
