An 18-year-old Jewish man who walked this morning, Sunday, on Hagai (El Wad) Street in the Old City, leading from the Damascus Gate to the Western Wall, was attacked by an Arab with a glass bottle.

The Jew sustained light to moderate injuries to his hand. An MDA team called to the scene gave him medical treatment.

It should be noted that high security tension has been felt since night and morning in the area of ​​the Temple Mount and the Old City, on the occasion of Tisha B'Av and the Muslim “Festival of the Sacrifice.”

Hundreds of Muslim worshipers rioted on the Temple Mount Sunday morning in an attempt to prevent Jews from visiting the holy site on the anniversary of the destruction of the first and second Holy Temple.

The rioters chanted nationalist slogans and clashed with police. Several rioters were injured, Arab media reported.

Police said, "Following nationalist calls and disturbances in the area of ​​the Temple Mount, police forces under the command of the district commander, who were on the scene, began to disperse order violators in order to restore public order."
