Palestinian women protest in Jerusalem’s Old City

Palestinian women protested near the Lion Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City on Wednesday, as minor clashes took place at a nearby compound known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as Temple Mount.

An Israeli police spokesperson said five people were detained, Wednesday, for throwing stones at police who had entered the compound after stones were thrown at visitors at the holy site ahead of the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, which begins today at sundown.
