Al Aqsa compound clashes continue for third day

  • Clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian protestors continued on Tuesday at Jerusalem's holy site of Al Aqsa compound for the third consecutive day.

    A police spokeswoman said Israeli forces raided the compound to disperse a group of protestors who barricaded themselves inside the mosque overnight.

    She said the protestors threw rocks and firecrackers in order to prevent Jewish visitors to the site. The police found piles of planks and rocks stock-piled by the protestors in the compound. (Source: IANS)
