Protesters on the Temple Mount threw stones and firebombs at Israeli police on March 8. It was the first time ever that firebombs have been used on the Temple Mount. Video footage made available by an Islamist group shows at least one policeman on fire. Tensions are rising in East Jerusalem. How long will it be before the city explodes?
Jewish groups claim the attacks are worse than those that took place during the Great Terror War of 2000, and are now demanding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu establish an official inquiry into the events. Police are accused of ignoring warnings about protester plans to carry out severe violence.
