The incident has led to the closure of the Temple Mount site, a holy site for both Jews and Muslims.

Glick has caused controversy by campaigning for Jews to be able to pray at the al-Aqsa mosque compound, one of Islam's holiest sites.

The 48-year-old is in a serious but stable condition in hospital, doctors said.
