The Israeli military has deployed the Iron Dome rocket interceptor on the outskirts of the southern city of Ashdod in anticipation of more rioting in Jerusalem, Channel 10 reported on Thursday morning.

Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, has declared Friday "a day of rage" in response to recent developments on Temple Mount [Al-Aqsa Mosque].
