  • Israeli police arrests a Palestinian worshipper at al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem Sunday Aug 11 2019

Israeli media also reported the clashes, saying Palestinian worshippers were marking Eid Al-Adha "which coincides with" the so-called Jewish holiday of Tisha B'Av.

Police said four officers were wounded as Palestinian protesters threw stones and other objects at security forces, who responded with what they called riot-dispersal means, without providing details.

Police said they started to disperse the crowds after Muslim visitors shouted nationalist slogans and began rioting.

It is the third-holiest site in Islam and the most sacred for Jews, who revere it as the location of the two biblical-era temples.

A potent symbol of Palestinian national identity, it is the scene of regular clashes between Palestinian worshippers and Israeli police. Police spokesmen could not be reached for comment.

Jews are barred from praying at the compound under a longstanding arrangement between Israel and Muslim authorities.

Extremist Jewish organizations, known widely as Temple Mount groups, had called for massive raids on the Al-Aqsa during this week.

Palestinians fear Israelis will seek to exert further control over the site. The Israeli government has repeatedly said it has no intention of changing the status quo.

Since occupying East Jerusalem in June 1967, Israelis have been praying at the Western Wall, a remnant from the Second Temple, which is considered the holiest site in Judaism.

Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, ruled by Islamist movement Hamas, have fought three wars since 2008. Israel views all of Jerusalem as its unified capital, while the Palestinians want east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

The Palestinian gunman approached the border fence, opened fire at the soldiers who fired back and shot him dead. It was not clear if he was a member of an armed group, and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
