Riots in Temple Mount, Western Wall area after Palestinian shot dead by Israeli guard

At least 10 Israelis wounded in clashes which broke out following funeral of man shot dead in Silwan earlier in the day.


Riots erupted near the Western Wall and Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday, after a Palestinian man was shot dead by an Israeli security guard earlier in the day.

More than 10 Israelis were wounded as hundreds of Palestinians began hurling stones toward Israeli security personnel after the funeral of the man, who had been shot dead in the East Jerusalem area of Silwan, an area that sees frequent tensions over its settler enclave.

An Israeli man, 35, was stabbed by a Palestinian rioter near Mount Scopus and hospitalized with moderate wounds, while three more Israelis were slightly wounded in the same area as Palestinian rioters overturned their car.

Police forces have been deployed throughout the area, including the Western Wall and the Temple Mount to prevent angry Palestinians from hurling stones at the Jewish worshipers praying ahead of the start of Sukkot at sundown Wednesday.
