Sukkot

Palestinians are blocked by Israel security forces from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, Islam's third most holy site, on October 13, 2014, following clashes from the last week by Palestinians protesting against Jews visiting the flash point holy site during the week-long Jewish holiday of Sukkot, or Feast of Tabernacles, Israeli police said. The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound is the scene of frequent clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinian youths, who object to what they see as an attempted Jewish and Israeli takeover of the site that is administered by Jordanian and Palestinian Muslim authorities.
