Police are maintaining heightened security amid Hamas’s call for a “Day of Rage” against Israel on Friday during which the terrorist organization implored Palestinians to take to the streets “in solidarity with the Aksa Mosque and Jerusalem intifada.”
Accusing Israel of “desecrating” the Aksa Mosque, Hamas told Palestinians to march toward checkpoints in the West Bank and clash with soldiers.
Scores of Palestinians demonstrated and clashed with police in the east Jerusalem neighborhoods of Abu Dis and Jebl Mukabar Thursday night.
Meanwhile, the police reported that a massive shipment of fireworks, knives and tasers, believed to be meant in part for use by rioters, was seized last week by Jerusalem District detectives and officers from the Tax Authority and the Ashdod Port Customs.
As of Thursday evening, Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police were assessing the security threat and deliberating over whether to impose age restrictions for Friday prayers on the Temple Mount.
