CAPITALS —AlGhad— Clashes broke out in the occupied city of Jerusalem, as tensions build after occupation authorities installed numerous electronic gates and detectors at several of the Aqsa Mosque complex’s entrances.

Sources say a group of Muslim worshipers tried to block a roadway in the Old City with a prayer-protest.

Palestinian worshipers refused to go through the electronic gates, and held their prayers out in the streets.

According to Israeli media, occupation police tried to drive the protestors back, which sparked clashes and various incidents of skirmish.

Several arrests were made.
