Event

Clashes between Israeli police officers and Muslim worshippers broke out in Jerusalem at the Temple Mount on the morning (local time) of Sunday, August 11. According to local media reports, the violence started after police officials decided not to allow Jewish worshippers to visit the holy site. Police are reportedly attempting to close off the Al-Aqsa Mosque and clear people from the area.

Tensions remain high and further clashes between security forces and worshippers are possible in the coming hours and days. Associated demonstrations may spread to other areas if the situation escalates.

Context

The Al-Aqsa mosque is considered one of the holiest sites in the Islamic religion, and access to the site is generally restricted for non-Muslim people, especially during religious holidays.

Advice

Individuals in Jerusalem, and Israel more generally, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all gatherings and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
