Palestinian terrorists threw tear-gas canisters at the Kever Rochel compound on Thursday as a large number of mispallelim were at the site. Some of the canisters landed close by the entrance, injuring at least five of the mispallelim, causing difficulty breathing and burning eyes. They were treated at the scene by Magen Dovid Adom and Hatzalah personnel.

Border police stationed at Kever Rochel gave chase to the terrorists, but they eluded arrest.
