The Jerusalem Post reports: Mayhem ensued on the Temple Mount Sunday morning, when a group of masked Arab assailants threw rocks, shoes, metal objects, and chairs at a group of Jewish visitors at the contested compound during the first of the last 10 days of Ramadan.

According to police, who provided video of the disturbance, the group of 11 observant Jews were targeted shortly after entering the compound at approximately 9 a.m. in what appeared to be a premeditated attack.

“Arabs, some of whom were masked, threw stones and other objects from inside al-Aksa Mosque at the group, and police officers responded quickly and arrested four suspects who were involved in the disturbance,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

The video shows at least 100 Muslims shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great), as well as slurs, at the visitors before the masked suspects wildly throw the objects from the doorway of al-Aksa Mosque, which police are not permitted to enter.
