A holy weekend in Jerusalem was also a weekend of violence.
Israeli forces used stun grenades and tear gas around the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and entered the mosque.
The hilltop compound is among the holy sites in Jerusalem. Palestinians threw rocks.
And all of this and more happened during a convergence of holy days.
Can you try to walk us through the last several days?
Well, sure. For the first time in something like three decades, the Jewish and Christian holidays of Passover and Easter are taking place during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, so more people than usual are converging on this sensitive area.
So early on Friday morning, Palestinians gathered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, seen as the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina, and some collected rocks.
Israeli authorities, which provided protection for Jewish groups visiting the site - which they call the Temple Mount and count as their most sacred holy site - they said the Palestinians were throwing rocks at people.
Police responded by storming the mosque compound.
Tear gas and stun grenades were used. Palestinians threw rocks back.
Medics said some 150 Palestinians were injured Friday. Hundreds of people were arrested.
Worst violence in the area in some time.
And then on Sunday, more clashes, as Israel said Palestinians were again attacking visiting Jewish groups. Palestinians threw fireworks.
Police moved in, 18 more arrests, some 17 people wounded, although the clashes seemed to be less violent than on Friday.
And the Associated Press is now reporting 14 people killed in Israel by Palestinian attackers and 25 Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in recent weeks.
Most of what you described, of course, happened in a very tiny area inside the old city of Jerusalem.
When we widen the lens out a little bit and look at the violence of the past month or so, how does that fit together?
Well, there has been a series of Palestinian attacks inside Israel, including three shootings and a mass stabbing.
Israeli forces are continuing to carry out military operations, arrests and raids in the West Bank, where they've deployed extra troops.
And just under a year ago, there was an 11-day war between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
That was preceded by a big police operation at the Al-Aqsa compound, along with Palestinian protests against Israeli plans to evict people from a part of Jerusalem.
Hamas wound up firing thousands of rockets into Israel, killing around a dozen.
Israel conducted more days of heavy airstrikes in Gaza, killed more than 200.
So tensions have been elevated for some time now.
And this Holy Week, it seems that it's just getting even sharper.
You're giving us a reminder that there have been occasions in the past where violence in this one narrow area has widened out to a wider war.
So who's trying, if anyone, to make sure that doesn't happen again?
Well, there have been calls for restraint, including from Washington.
There's also been condemnation of the violence from people like Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, who condemned Israel's, quote, "intervention on worshippers."
He wrote on Twitter that he spoke with his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmoud Abbas.
Erdogan told him that Turkey would stand against provocations and threats.
Erdogan, of course, has been trying to mend fences with Israel, too, and he's likely to stay on that path, despite his complaints about these recent clashes.
