Jewish Man Attacked, Arrested on Temple Mount

A Jewish man has been arrested on the Temple Mount on suspicion of attacking a Muslim man at the site, according to the Honenu legal rights group.

The man says he did not attack the Muslim man, but rather was the victim of an unprovoked attack. The man was visiting the Mount with friends in honor of Passover when, he says, the Muslim man approached the group and began insulting them, and then physically attacking.

Police refused to arrest the Muslim man despite testimony from the Jewish group that he had been the one attacking.
