Israel security forces have closed off the al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jersualem as more than 200 Palestinians stage a sit-in at the site.

Sporadic clashes broke out on Sunday as military and police checkpoints were set up around the site, known as the Haram al-Sharif to Muslims and the Temple Mount to Jews.

At least four people were wounded and seven arrested as clashes broke out at the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

Shmuel Ben-Ruby, the Israeli police spokesman for Jerusalem, said that about 150 demonstrators, some throwing rocks and bottles were dispersed from one area near the al-Aqsa compound, but unrest was continuing in nearby east Jerusalem.

Israeli security forces have said that the restrictions will stay in place until the Palestinian protesters turn themselves to authorities.

Palestinian officials told Al Jazeera that protesters entered the mosque late on Saturday to prevent a repeat a last Sunday’s clashes around the mosque.

At least 13 Palestinians were injured and seven detained after fighting broke when Israelis apparently attempted to enter al-Aqsa.

Al Jazeera’s Sherine Tadros, reporting from Jerusalem, said there was a lot of tension in the city because of the stand-off.

„It could of course boil over if we hear of clashes between the police and those at the sit-in at the al-Aqsa compound,“ she said. (Al Jazeera)
