Stone-throwing Arab youths wounded three policemen on the Temple Mount on Sunday as Jerusalem police, firing water cannons and stun grenades, raided the holy site in a bid to quell repeated bouts of rioting.
Police stormed the compound twice; the first time was in response to Arab youths who pelted officers with rocks and poured oil on them.
Later Sunday morning, about 100 Arab youths renewed rioting at the Temple Mount, after which Border Police and regular policemen raided the site again, using stun grenades to disperse the rioters.
Police were attempting to completely clear the compound of worshippers. Officers arrested a total of 15 people during the disturbances.
During the clash, police arrested Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on Jerusalem affairs, Hatam Abd al-Qadir, on suspicion of disorderly conduct. Police said he attacked officers and urged worshippers to hold a protest march.
