Violent clashes broke out at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Friday, the last day of Ramadan, as Border Police close Damascus Gate.

No better way to celebrate Ramadan than to attack Jews on the Temple Mount that is illegally occupied by the Muslims, and that’s exactly what happened earlier in the day today in the capital city of Israel in Jerusalem.

“Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.” 2 Chronicles 33:4 (KJB)

You can have all the Abraham Accords you like, and Israel can make peace with every Muslim nation on earth, but there will still not be peace in the Middle East until Israel makes peace with the Palestinians. That, of course, the bible tells us will never, ever happen not now, and not in the Millennium. That’s because the ‘peace’ that’s coming up will be the biblical false peace, and when Jesus returns as King of Kings, He will cast out the Canaanites as Zechariah tells us.

“In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 14:20,21 (KJB)

Violent clashes break out at Temple Mount

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: Clashes broke out between worshipers and security forces on the scene of the Temple Mount, where tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers gathered to mark the last Friday prayers of the Ramadan. Initial reports indicated several injuries, including at least 12 police officers, and 35 Palestinians, including two in serious condition, during the riots, according to the Red Cross, cited by Israeli media.  One of those injured was an Israeli officer who is in moderate condition after being hit in the face with a rock.

Border Police officers closed off Damascus Gate in the Old City in an attempt to regain control of the situation and to prevent more people from joining the riots. The secretary general of Islamic Jihad said Friday that “it is impossible to tolerate what is happening in Jerusalem and the enemy must expect our response at any moment.”

Hamas also put out a statement Friday warning Israel about potential repercussions of the clashes at the Temple Mount.  Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh sent a direct message to Prime Minister

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU TELLING HIM “NOT TO PLAY WITH FIRE. THIS IS A STRUGGLE THAT YOU, YOUR ARMY, YOUR POLICE AND YOUR WHOLE COUNTRY CANNOT WIN. WE WILL DEFEND JERUSALEM NO MATTER WHAT SACRIFICES WE MUST MAKE,” YNET REPORTED.

Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas said that he called on the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations to demand the UN Security Council convene to discuss the situation in Jerusalem including clashes and clashes in Sheikh Jarrah, Walla reported.  Jordan’s foreign ministry condemned the entrance of Israeli forces to the Temple Mount, and their “animalistic attack” of worshipers there.

Qatar also denounced the entrance of Israeli security forces to the Temple mount in the wake of clashes, calling it “provocation for millions of Muslims around the world,” Ynet reported. Qatar went on to call for the international community to act to stop Israeli harm of the Palestinian people.

Israeli Police reported that “police troops began using riot control measures a while ago, in an attempt to restore order after violent riots broke out at the Temple Mount, during which hundreds of suspects started throwing rocks, bottles and other items towards our forces.”

“WE WILL NOT ALLOW THE DISRUPTION OF ORDER, ANY FORM OF VIOLENCE AND ATTEMPTS TO HARM OFFICERS WHILE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND USING IT TO PROMOTE A VIOLENT INCIDENT THAT INCLUDES HUNDREDS OF WORSHIPERS STARTING TO RIOT AND HURTING POLICE OFFICERS,” A POLICE STATEMENT RELEASED AFTER POLICE MANAGED TO REGAIN CONTROL AT THE TEMPLE MOUNT READ.

Earlier, a video published by KAN News showed worshipers waving Hamas flags at the Temple Mount. Israel Police and IDF had sent reinforcements to the capital in preparation for the fourth and final Friday prayers of the month of Ramadan on the Temple Mount and closed several streets in the area.

Violent clashes broke out at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Friday, the last day of Ramadan

Clashes broke out between worshipers and security forces on the scene of the Temple Mount, where tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers gathered to mark the last Friday prayers of the Ramadan. 

Some 17 Israeli police officers were injured in the clashes with approximately half of them needing treatment in hospitals, a police spokesperson said Saturday morning. 

One of the injured was an Israeli officer who is in moderate condition after being hit in the face with a rock.

Some 205 Palestinians were injured, according to Palestine Red Crescent, with 108 of those injured transferred to Jerusalem hospitals for treatment.

One of the injured lost an eye, two suffered serious head wounds and two had their jaws fractured, the Red Crescent said. Most of the rest of the injuries were minor, it added.

Footage from the Temple Mount showed Israeli security forces firing a stun grenade into al-Aqsa Mosque, Kan reported. Police were then seen locking the doors of the mosque while worshipers were still inside, according to Kan.

Border Police officers closed off Damascus Gate in the Old City in an attempt to regain control of the situation and to prevent more people from joining the riots.
