Temple Mount Children Pelted With Stones

I reported on the Temple Mount Children's Ascent earlier.

I now learn that the participants were attacked on the Mount of Olives in the second part of the program.

One Arab was also injured


Islamic news site:

Nearly 200 Israeli settlers stormed Monday morning al-Aqsa mosque under Israeli police protection in flagrant provocation to the Palestinian worshipers and students who started shouting 'Takbir', al-Aqsa Foundation For Endowment and Heritage said.
Since the early morning hours, 5 settler groups stormed al-Aqsa mosque from Mughrabi gate, including youths, children, mentors and soldiers in their military uniforms, the Foundation added. The settlers were shouting and laughing out loud and showed no respect for the place.

Israeli settlers escalated their break-ins into al-Aqsa mosque recently as part of the Israeli plan to divide the mosque and to impose a fait accompli in the holy city.



Several children who bowed down in respect for the holiness of the site were given a warning by nearby police officers, they said. The officers reportedly threatened to arrest the tour guides.
