In the Jerusalem temple, clashes occurred between Muslims and Jews. The police stopped the conflict

The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha coincided with the national mourning day of the Jewish people.

On the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, a conflict occurred between Muslims and Jews. According to The Jerusalem Post, the reason was the coincidence of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha and the national day of mourning for the Jewish people, Ninth of Av.

As the journalists noted, usually in the days of Kurban Bayram the Temple Mount is closed to all who do not profess Islam, but this year the dates coincided. After the morning protests of the Jewish people, the Jews were allowed to go to the shrine. Muslims prevented Jews from entering the Temple Mount, which led to clashes between citizens.

Police intervened to end the conflict. The siloviki used stun grenades and other means. The number of victims is not reported.

After that, the Jerusalem authorities forbade the Jews to enter the shrine for security reasons. Near the temple, about 80 thousand Muslims gathered to celebrate Eid al-Adha.
