Hundreds of Arabs chanting anti-Jewish epithets surrounded a group of Jews who ascended the Temple Mount.

Many of the Arabs also held up three fingers, a triumphant sign of the three kidnapped Israeli teens, during Wednesday’s incident.

Muslim children at a summer camp accosted the group before they were then joined by adults in a confrontation that was recorded by onlookers.

The Jewish group’s visit had been authorized by security officials at the Temple Mount.

Police officers attempted to separate the groups, and then escorted the Jewish group from the site, according to Israel National News.
