Israeli riot police clashed with Palestinians in Jerusalem's al-Aqsa compound as Jewish worshippers attempted to enter the shrine.
Israeli border police increased their presence near the entrance to the Al-Aqsa compound, revered in Islam and Judaism, as Jewish worshippers prepared to attempt to enter the compound to pray for the recovery of a right activist shot last week by a Palestinian gunman.
Israeli police said Palestinians began throwing stones and firecrackers at police officers minutes before the sacred plaza was to open for visitors.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said officers used stun grenades to disperse the crowd and the situation was now under control.
Omar Alkeswani, a Palestinian manager of the al Aqsa mosque, said police entered mosque - something they deny - and that 20 people were wounded in the clash.
