After a week of near-daily violence at the site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, Israeli police said there were further skirmishes with Palestinians around the Al-Aqsa Mosque Thursday morning, masking dozens of people Men tried to prevent Jewish visitors from visiting the area by throwing stones and shooting fireworks.
