Palestinians boycott Israeli measures at Al-Aqsa Mosque

Hebron Shooter Azaria Released From Israeli Army, Sent to House Arrest

A police spokesman said that following the Muslim evening prayer, which was held outside the Temple Mount compound as worshippers refused to pass through metal detectors to reach the Al-Aqsa Mosque, officers dispersed rioters who pelted them with bottles and stones.

Since 2015, Palestinians have killed 45 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and attacks using cars.

Tensions have soared since Friday.

The three assailants, described as Arab-Israeli men of Palestinian heritage, were killed by security forces near the scene of the attack at the Lions' Gate, which is situated directly northeast of the Temple Mount compound, the Israeli Broadcasting Corp.

According to Palestinian eyewitnesses, Israeli soldiers responded with a barrage of bullets, killing the driver.

Wa'al, another resident of the Muslim Quarter, said that the new security measures are an act of war not only against the Palestinian people, but the entire Muslim world. Israel's Shin Bet security service, which closely monitors Palestinian society, reportedly opposes the metal detectors as counterproductive, while police support the new measures.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority, Jordan and the Arab League stressed their rejection of any adjustment to the status quo in Jerusalem and Al Aqsa Mosque.

GREENE: That is the sound of Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem outside a site that is known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims.

Miami rapper and record producer Luther Campbell , aka Luke Skyywalker, offered 2 Live Crew a recording contract. However, he retaught himself how to talk and walk before reuniting with Uncle Luke and Brother Marquis in 2012.

Palestinians have already been performing prayers outside the compound in protest since it was reopened on Sunday after a two-day closure.

Conflicts over the walled holy site, revered by Muslims and Jews, have repeatedly triggered Israeli-Palestinian confrontations.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party called for a "day of rage" to take place in eastern Jerusalem and the disputed territories on Wednesday.

The Muslim worshipers are purportedly protesting the Israeli government's decision to install metal detectors at the entrances to the Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and a site holy to Islam.

Netanyahu's office said in a statement that Abbas had condemned the attack in the call and that the Israeli Prime Minister had said all necessary measures would be taken to ensure security on the Temple Mount "without changes to the status quo". He spoke on Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation with reporters.

"I understand there is friction around the matter of the metal detectors".

The metal detectors were installed after three gunmen had opened fire near Temple Mount on Friday.
