JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least eight young Palestinian men as they left the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem on Friday afternoon.

Director of the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said that Anas Abu Asab, Muni al-Ajlouni, Mohammad Abu Sneineh, Omar al-Zaaneen, Awni Dkeidek, Awni Abu Sbeih, and Mohammad al-Dakkak were among those detained.

The identities of the other detained individuals were still unknown.

Witnesses said that two people were also arrested from al-Wad street in the Old City near the Al-Aqsa compound.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that "masked suspects threw stones at police" at the Moroccan Gate following Friday prayers.

Following the incident, he said that police detained seven people but did not enter the Al-Aqsa compound.

Israeli authorities banned Palestinians under the age of 50 from attending Friday prayers in the compound last week, leading to large protests across East Jerusalem as thousands prayed in the streets at police checkpoints.

Israeli authorities said the restrictions were put in place to prevent "plans for unrest," amid a debate on extending Israeli sovereignty over the compound that has provoked outrage across the region and led the Jordanian premier to call for the review of the country's peace treaty with Israel.

The Al-Aqsa compound is located in East Jerusalem, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967. According to a 1994 peace agreement between Israel and Jordan, the compound is under Jordanian custodianship.

All they need is an excuse to harrass Muslims and Crustians. The Holyland is underseige by these soldiers of the imposter state of Israel, Holy Israel it is NOT. They stop Muslims from entrance to any Muslim sites. They won't even let Muslims near the Western wall without abusing them. This is the true face of Israel's crimes they carry guns to murder yet the stones of the holyland will defend the Palestinians until their king of kings arrives!

Tammy, that is simply not true. I have witnessed and escorted Muslims to the Western Wall several times. When I try to ascend to the Temple Mount, however, I am denied. Why?

Larry My husbands Muslim sister who is a American Muslim was refused entrance to the wailing wall because when they looked at her passport & saw her name they asked if she was a Muslim & when she said yes they said no Muslims allowed. You try & portray that Muslim are given acces but it is a lie they are harassed at all holy sites & if you want to know why there is security at Al Aqsa I suggest you look up the gunning down of Muslim worshippers by Jewish extremists at Ibrahimi & Al Aqsa mosques.

All religions are given access to the mount at given times yet Muslims aren't given access to the Kotel.
