A number of Muslims threw a Molotov Cocktail at the Israeli police station on the Temple Mount. Police at the scene identified and arrested the suspects. This is not the first time that the Muslims have damaged the police station on the Temple Mount. In this incident one policeman was slightly injured from smoke inhalation and was evacuated to medical treatment.

As a result of the firebombing attack, the Israeli police ordered all people to be removed from the Temple Mount so they could close the site and carry out a search for additional weapons.

The police found several containers of flammable materials in various areas around the Temple Mount, as well as firecrackers and Molotov Cocktails.

The police detained over 10 suspects and took them in for questioning. They are continuing to investigate and search the Temple Mount.

“The police forces are deployed in the area of ​​the Temple Mount and the alleys of the Old City and East Jerusalem in order to prevent any response to any attempt to disrupt public order in light of the grave incident that took place in the Temple Mount area,” the police said.

The Muslims began rioting with violent clashes against the police as the Israeli police evacuated the holy site to conduct the searches.
