Watch: Blaze Erupted On Temple Mount As Jerusalem Unrest Intensifies | ZeroHedge

An area sacred to both Jews and Muslims, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, earlier caught fire as a Palestinian uprising across various parts of Israel appears to be in progress overnight.

Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is considered the third holiest site in Islam, sits atop Temple Mount – which in ancient times was site of the Second Jewish Temple. At least one large tree atop the sacred site is ablaze, multiple social media videos show, after fireworks were shot amid rioting during clashes with police. The area has been deeply contested since the founding of the nation-state of Israel during the first half of the 20th century.11.3KTech rout leads Wall Street decline
