Bethlehem - Ma'an - An Israeli soldier manning the Qalandiya checkpoint between the central West Bank and Jerusalem was showered with stones thrown by angry pilgrims barred from praying at the Al-Aqsa mosque.

Several Palestinian citizens, frustrated by the long wait and harsh treatment at the hands of soldiers as they waited to be allowed into Jerusalem for prayer, picked up stones from the ground and threw them at an Israeli soldier.

The soldier was lightly injured, according to Israeli sources.

Thousands crowded the checkpoint, and hundreds were turned back as Israeli forces tightened their restrictions on Palestinians allowed to enter Jerusalem.
