JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinians in Jerusalem on Friday as clashes broke out throughout the city following the imposition of new restrictions on Palestinian worshipers at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

Two people were beaten and detained by undercover Israeli forces in the Ras al-Amoud neighborhood, while a man described as an "Israeli settler" opened fire at Palestinians from his car.

The man reportedly fled the scene without being apprehended by Israeli security forces nearby.

Israelis from Jewish settlements on the Mount of Olives near Ras al-Amoud threw stones at Palestinians and their cars as they passed on Friday as well.

Near the Old City's Damascus Gate, meanwhile, Israeli forces detained a Palestinian identified as Mohammad al-Rashq after they dispersed local youths and inspected their IDs.

In the area between Cotton Merchant's Gate and the Council Gate of the Al-Aqsa compound Israeli forces scuffled with youths, beating them with batons and spraying pepper spray. They detained one youth during the clashes.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that three had been arrested in Ras al-Amoud after "rioted" after noon prayers. He added that two "petrol bombs" were also thrown at Israeli police units near Issawiya, but could not confirm any other incidents.
