There was more violence at the holy sites in Jerusalem Friday as Israeli police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades at a crowd near the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Police say they were responding to crowds of Palestinians throwing rocks and fireworks.

It's the latest in a series of clashes between Israelis and Palestinians that have raised fears of a bigger conflict like last year's Gaza war.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with NPR international correspondent Peter Kenyon, who is in Israel.

This segment aired on April 22, 2022.
