Israeli police forces on Sunday raided Jerusalem's al Aqsa Mosque compound after Palestinian demonstrators pelted them with stones. According to the AP, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby conveyed police forces used stun grenades to disperse the demonstrators Sunday and arrested 12 people. There were no reports of injuries.
Ben-Ruby added police did not enter the al-Aqsa mosque.
Muslim leaders had called on Palestinians to defend the site against what they called "Jewish conquest."
