Palestinian worshipers have clashed with Israeli security forces outside a gate to the Old City in Jerusalem, as tensions continue over the new security measures implemented at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Israeli security forces were seen dragging a worshiper, while another police officer appeared to punch a Palestinian man during the confrontation on Wednesday (July 19, 2017).

Stun grenades were fired as police forces tried to disperse the crowd, while several people were seen throwing objects in response.
