- Story Text:After two weeks of snowballing tension and some of the worst violence in years, the main prayer session at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa's mosque ended with clashes but more quietly than expected on Friday (July 28), with Israel setting an age-limit on who could attend.
Extra police stood guard throughout the walled Old City, some wearing riot gear, some on horseback, in anticipation of mass protests. As the prayers ended Palestinian protesters briefly clashed with Israeli officers in several hot-spots.
Some protesters threw bottles at the police who replied with stun grenades to disperse the crowd. Several Palestinians were treated by paramedics on site, but no major injuries were reported.
Throughout the day, Israel limited entry to the mosque's compound, referred to by Jews as the Temple Mount and by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, to men over the age of 50, while women of all ages were allowed in.
