Muslims Pray, Protest Outside Jerusalem Shrine; Mad Israel Installed Metal Detectors in Holy Site

Thousands of Muslims prayed today (July 21, 2017) in the streets near a contested shrine in Jerusalem's Old City to protest the installation of metal detectors at the holy site, according to the Religion News website.

In three areas near the Old City, Israeli forces fired tear gas to dispense small groups of Palestinian stone-throwers.

Muslim leaders had urged the faithful not to enter the sacred compound until Israel removes the detectors.

Israel installed the metal detectors after three Palestinians launched an attack from the shrine, killing two Israeli policeman a week ago.
