News the HP Doesn't Cover: Stone Throwing on Temple Mount

More violence from the Palestinians, left unpublished by the Huffington Post:

The Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount was the scene of clashes between Palestinian youths and Israeli police Wednesday morning, the latest in a series of skirmishes as Jewish pilgrims have flocked to the site over the holiday.
After Palestinians in the courtyard began rioting, police officers stormed the plaza atop the site. Ma’an News Agency reported that police fired stun grenades at the rioters. Seven Palestinians were injured, according to Ma’an.Once the unrest settled down, police exited the area to wait by the Mughrabi Gate overlooking the Western Wall.The sensitive Temple Mount area, holy to both Muslims and Jews, is controlled by the Muslim Waqf, but security is overseen by Israel. Non-Muslims are allowed to visit, but all non-Muslim religious ritual is banned.
