More clashes as tensions rise over Jerusalem

More clashes as tensions rise over Jerusalem

Clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces broke out again across Jerusalem and the West Bank on Saturday, with the mood tremendously intense around Jerusalem's Old City.

Over 300 people participated in a peaceful assembly in Jalan Tun Razak here today, to protest against Israel's latest act of violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

"If we are patient we will surely get what we want and halt these electronic doors and stop these measures and stop the raids of the Israeli government in all the cities of the West Bank".

Israel made a decision to install the metal detectors at the entry to the shrine on Sunday.

Angry demonstrations calling for the removal of the metal detectors are also taking place in cities across the Muslim world.

A spokesman for Housing Minister Yoav Galant told Haaretz: "We will be everywhere that it is possible to build".

Muslim leaders and Palestinian political factions had urged the faithful to gather for a "day of rage" against the new security policies, which they see as altering the agreements that have governed the holy site for decades.

The tensions have gone a crescendo last week after a gun attack at a fire that claimed the lives of two israeli police on the 14th of July in the old city of Jerusalem. "This is problematic - they are using it to booby-trap the area with potential for terrorism".

The main weekly prayers on Fridays draw the largest number of worshippers, typically thousands, and speculation had been mounting that Netanyahu might order the metal detectors removed.

Israel captured East Jerusalem, along with its holy sites, from Jordan in the 1967 war and then annexed the area in a move that was never internationally recognized.

Bachtiar Nasir said the rally was able to unite various groups in support of Al Aqsa. It said senior military officials are meeting overnight to discuss how to proceed.

Six people have ben killed in the bloodiest spate of Israeli-Palestinian violence for years, prompted by new security measures at Jerusalem's holiest site.

A Palestinian sneaked into a home in the West Bank Israeli settlement of Halamish after nightfall on Friday (local time) and stabbed to death three Israelis.

The attacker had posted on Facebook that he was upset by events in Jerusalem, according to Israel's Channel 10.

Medics reported another 40 wounded in the Gaza Strip.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said his country is in touch with Israeli officials to try to end the crisis.

"We are conducting this calmly, determinedly and responsibly and we will continue to maintain our security", he added.
