Police forced entry into the Temple Mount plaza today (Friday) after stones and Molotov cocktails were thrown by rioters at the end of Friday prayers.

A video circulating on social media showed a police officer running alone on a staircase in the Temple Mount compound.

When he reached the top of the stairs, one of the rioters pushed and knocked him down. The crowd that was there cheered for the attack.
