Masked Palestinians hurl stones at Israeli border police during clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians in the Shuafat Refugee Camp on the northern outskirts of Jerusalem on October 5, 2009. Israeli police and Palestinian protestors clashed near Al-Aqsa, a flashpoint site sacred to Muslims and Jews that saw similar unrest a week ago. The altercation occurred after Israeli authorities closed the holy site, considered Islam's third holiest shrine, and 150 to 200 people gathered to pray outside the Lion's Gate, which leads into the compound .
