Jerusalem police arrested four Arabs suspected of attacking Jews on the Temple Mount Sunday.

While a group of Jews visited the holy site, a number of Arabs attacked them, hurling stones at the group and injuring one.

Following the attack Sunday, authorities closed the Temple Mount to Muslims. The area was reopened to Muslims later that day, and was open for visitors and Muslim worshippers alike on Monday.

After the stone-throwing attack, police took four Arab suspects into custody for their role in the assault.
