Five people were injured Sunday morning, the first day of Chol Hamoed in Israel, when a group of Arabs threw stones at an Egged bus making its way towards the Kosel.

MDA medics and paramedics treated the wounded and evacuated them to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Two Arabs were arrested on suspicion of throwing stones at buses. Police are searching for more suspects in the stone-throwing attacks.

Police forces entered Har HaBayis following an attempt by Arabs to disrupt public order and prevent Jewish visits to the Kosel on Chol Hamoed.

Police noticed that hundreds of young Arabs, some of them masked, began collecting stones in the plaza of Har HaBayis.

Forces were deployed throughout the area to keep the peace and allow Jews to daven at the Kosel.
