Jewish Press: Israel may have ended its Operation Guardian of the Walls against Hamas in Gaza, but the terror group’s reach remains long and vicious.

Immediately following the noon prayer on Friday at the Al Aqsa Mosque on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, young Arabs began rioting, hurling rocks and throwing at least one Molotov cocktail (firebomb) at Jerusalem police, police said.

“… They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, And the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever.” Malachi 1:4

It is believed the violence came in response to calls by the Hamas terrorist organization for a “Day of Rage” in Jerusalem.

Rioters were cursing, spitting and throwing things at police officers who exercised restraint in their response, according to one local source.

The police commander of the Jerusalem district ordered supplementary forces to enter the Temple Mount and quell the rioters who were near the local police station.
