JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israel Police will restrict entrance Friday for Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount, allowing only allow men over 50 with Israeli ID cards to enter in an attempt to prevent rioting after midday prayers. The same restrictions do not apply to women.

Following reports of possible rioting, police and border guards were deployed in the Old City and east Jerusalem neighborhoods Friday afternoon.

"Police will take a firm hand against any attempt to disrupt the order," the Israel Police said in a statement.

Last Friday, Muslim worshippers threw rocks and firebombs at police, catching the uniform of one office on fire. Police used stun grenades to disperse the rioters, lightly injuring several and arresting four of them.
