Israeli police deployed tear gas and stun grenades to disperse Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem's Old City, the occupied West Bank and Gaza. The Palestinians were rallying against the entry by Jewish groups under police escort to the al-Aqsa mosque compound. Palestinians oppose Jewish worship at the plaza of the Jerusalem holy site revered by both Muslims and Jews, seeing it as a first step toward restricting access to the area for Muslims and the strengthening of Israeli control over the Old City.
