Israeli Police have released footage showing some of the violence perpetrated by Muslim extremists on the Temple Mount over Tisha B'Av.

Islamists used the Al Aqsa Mosque as a base for the attacks, barricading themselves inside with stockpiles of rocks, wooden boards, fireworks and other projectiles.

The rioters had intended to use the deadly stockpile to launch attacks against Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest site - as well as for attacks on security services, but were stopped after police, acting on a tip-off, swooped in and preemptively dispersed them, seizing their weapons.
