A Muslim mob heckled Jewish visitors to the Kotel on Tuesday, screaming "Allahu Akhbar" and holding posters in Arabic in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. 

Hundreds of visitors were walking past the protest to go to the Western Wall (Kotel) on Tuesday, in honor of the Sukkot holiday. 

The protest is just one of multiple clashes between Palestinian Arabs and Israel Police near and on the Mount since Sunday; the past several days have been marked by riots, an organized firebomb attack, incitement from Hamas to wage war on the Mount, and clashes between an Arab MK and police forces escorting Jewish visitors
