After Israel Hamas announce ceasefire, clashes break out at Al Aqsa mosque

After a ceasefire was declared ending 11 days of conflict between Israel and Hamas, fresh cases broke out between the Palestinian protesters and Israeli police at the Al Aqsa Mosque. 

Police fired stun grenades and tear gas at protesters while and Palestinians hurled rocks and at least one firebomb at officers. 

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said stones were thrown at officers who were at one of the gates on patrol. 

“Hundreds of people threw rocks and petrol bombs at police officers who responded at the scene and began dispersing the rioters,” Rosenfeld said in a statement. 

“Units responded and entered the Temple Mount area. They are dealing with these disturbances in order to contain the situation… Police units are at the scene,” he said, using the Jewish Temple Mount name for the site.
