Clashes in Jerusalem after Aqsa ban

Sept. 27, 2013 4:58 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 28, 2013 4:45 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians suffered tear-gas inhalation after clashes broke out between Palestinians and Israeli forces in different areas in Jerusalem, a Ma’an reporter said.

Israeli forces suppressed demonstrations that launched from different areas in Jerusalem supporting the al-Aqsa Mosque and condemning repeated "raids" during the Jewish holidays.

Demonstrations were held at five gates leading into the Old City, and Israeli forces confronted demonstrators with tear gas and stun grenades.

Five Palestinians were arrested during the clashes across the city.

Earlier, Israel restricted access to the mosque for men to only those aged under 50, citing security concerns.
