Israel bans Muslim men under age 50 from mosque

Fifty years of immoral occupation

Following the deadly shootout inside the compound last Friday in which two Israeli policeman were killed, metal detectors were installed by Israeli police. Israel said it was investigating the reports.

There's a tense standoff in Jerusalem Friday between Palestinians and Israeli police. Gilad Erdan, Israel's public security minister, also warned of potential "large-scale volatility".

In the Issawiya neighborhood, a burning tire was rolled from the top of a road toward security forces.

This comes as Israel has arrested the brother of a 20-year-old Palestinian who stabbed to death three members of an Israeli family.

Violent clashes between Israelis and Palestinians have left at least six people dead.

On Thursday, police released video footage of the weapons being smuggled into the holy site.

Muslim leaders have portrayed the metal detectors as part of a purported Israeli campaign to expand its control over the shrine - a claim Israel denies.

His comments came as the Arab League's secretary-general accused Israel of "playing with fire" with the new measures at the compound, known as Haram Al Sharif.

"I declare the suspension of all contacts with the Israeli side on all levels until it cancels its measures at al Aqsa mosque and preserves the status quo", Abbas said in a brief televised speech.

One Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli gunfire in the A-Tur neighbourhood of east Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

Jerusalem's top Muslim cleric, Mohammed Hussein, said protests, including mass street prayers outside the shrine, would continue until the devices were removed. It reported a third Palestinian fatality, Mohammed Lafi, 18, later. He was identified by Palestinian media as Muhammad Hassan Abu Ghanem. Bin said the wounded attacker was taken to a hospital.

A post on Abed's Facebook page says that he was motivated to act in response to the ongoing situation regarding the Temple Mount. The three were laid to rest Friday evening.

"Peace and unity will not be achieved in the world unless the Jerusalem issue is solved", he added. According to police, dozens of people entered the compound.

The Palestinian, who was shot and wounded at the scene, is in custody. The officers then fired rubber bullets and stun grenades to disperse the worshippers and move them back.

Palestinians also threw rocks at cars outside the West Bank settlement of Tekoa.

An Israeli official said the security cabinet "has given police the authority to make any decision to ensure free access to holy sites while maintaining security and public order".
