Jerusalem (Israel), July 29 (ANI): After two weeks of snowballing tension, the main prayer session at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque ended with clashes, but ones which were less violent than expected, with Israel setting an age-limit on who could attend. Extra police stood guard throughout the walled Old City, some wearing riot gear, some on horseback, in anticipation of mass protests. As the prayers ended, Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli officers in several hot-spots. Some protesters threw bottles at the police who replied with stun grenades to disperse the crowd. Several Palestinians were treated by paramedics on site, but no major injuries were reported.
