(Worthy News) - Israeli police plans to send large numbers of officers to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Friday, in preparation for possible protests and riots after Muslim morning prayers conclude, as violence continues to strike the city.

The recent turmoil in and around Al-Aqsa mosque, as well as intelligence indicating Arab youths intend to violently protest, led Jerusalem’s chief of police, Moshe Edri, to order the reinforcement.

Acts of violence continued in Jerusalem on Thursday evening.

A bus driver was lightly wounded in the city when stones hit his bus near the Hizma checkpoint. He was treated by a paramedic team and taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. [ Source ]

800 extra cops deployed in Jerusalem amid Palestinian calls for 'day of rage'

Amid Palestinian calls for a "day of rage" in Jerusalem following Friday prayers, police have preemptively deployed some 800 extra officers to patrol the Old City and Arab neighborhoods throughout the capital, and will bar Muslim men under the age of 40 from ascending the Temple Mount.

The call for violence follows several days of rioting on the Temple Mount after Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon banned the Islamist extremist groups Murabitun and Murabatat from the compound for their constant intimidation of and violence against Jewish visitors.

Following Ya'alon's order, the PLO Executive Committee held an emergency meeting in Ramallah and called for "confronting Israeli terror schemes" against Islamic holy sites, while Hamas said that the government's move was tantamount to a "declaration of war." [ Source ]
