Footage shows an Israeli soldier about to throw a stun grenade into a crowd, before receiving orders to stop.
VICE News correspondent @hanood7sn began filming this clip right after a stun grenade was reportedly used against medics and journalists.
The incident took place amid growing chaos in Jerusalem, as Israeli police fired rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades outside the Al Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.
Tensions have escalated ahead of a now-delayed court ruling on whether authorities are allowed to evict dozens of Palestinians from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
