Palestine: Al-AqsaZionist police arrested nine Palestinians and tried to disperse stone-throwing youths outside Jerusalem's Old City on Friday, a spokeswoman said.

Palestinians threw stones at policemen at Damascus Gate in Arab east Jerusalem, lightly injuring one, in ongoing small-scale clashes that followed Friday prayers, Luba Samri said in a statement.

Outside the southern walls of the Old City, near the Al-Aqsa mosque, Palestinian youths burned tires and pelted police with stones, Samri added.

Meanwhile, thousands of demonstrators in the Gaza Strip protested in support of Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque, in marches called for by Hamas.

Jerusalem sees regular clashes between Palestinians and Zionist police at the compound that houses the Al-Aqsa and Dome of the Rock mosques in the Old City.

The Al-Aqsa compound is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.
