Israeli police on Tuesday detained two men – a Muslim and a Jew – in occupied East Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
According to Israeli police spokesperson Luba Samri, police detained a Jewish man for violating "visit regulations" in the compound, which, she said, "could have disturbed public peace."
"A Muslim worshipper has also been detained for interrogation on suspicion that he attempted to attack a Jewish visitor," Samri added in a statement, without giving further details on either incident.
For Muslims, Al-Aqsa represents the world's third holiest site. Jews, for their part, refer to the area as the "Temple Mount," claiming it was the site of two Jewish temples in ancient times.
