At least three killed in "day of rage" protests in Jerusalem

French President Emmanuel Macron embraces Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Vel d'Hiv roundup in Paris

Palestinian and Muslim religious leaders have called on worshippers not to enter the compound through the metal detectors, and hundreds have been holding prayers outside the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, with clashes occasionally breaking out.

CHURCH leaders in Jerusalem have fervently condemned the escalation of violence at the Temple Mount - or Haram ash-Sharif - the highly contested religious site in the Israeli-occupied Old City of Jerusalem.

Last Friday, three Arab Israelis opened fire on Israeli police, killing two officers, before fleeing to the compound where security forces shot them dead.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas spoke by telephone on Thursday with Jared Kushner, son-in-law and chief adviser to President Donald Trump, and asked the United States to "intervene urgently" in a rapidly escalating crisis over Israel's installation of metal detectors at Jerusalem's Temple Mount holy site.

Netanyahu was due to hold security consultations over the issue, and likely decide on a course of action, on his return to Israel later in the day from visits to France and Hungary, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said Friday that three teens were shot and killed in clashes with security forces, in east Jerusalem and not in the area of the mosque, although circumstances remain unclear. Police say that the metal detectors will be used selectively.

"This is our place of prayer, we have sovereignty here", Salaam added.

Interesting characters from the old games, such as Guy, Cody and Rolento, have joined the roster of several Street Fighter titles. Even so, it doesn't rule out the possibility of more fan favorites coming to Street Fighter 5 through the game's Season 3 DLC.

The Fatah Movement has called for a "day of rage" on Wednesday against the measures.

After last week's attack, the holy site was closed for Muslim prayers for the first time in decades as police searched the area for weapons.

After the site was reopened, metal detectors were installed. The ambassador said that "the Israeli extremist government makes to make the situation explode, above all to hinder U.S. attempts to restart dialogue for the two-state solution".

Muslim leaders had urged worshippers not to enter the sacred compound until Israel removes the detectors, portraying Israel's measures as an encroachment on Muslim rights.

The participants of the worldwide conference in Baku dedicated to the issue of Jerusalem condemned the closure of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the ban on Jumah prayers.

The Haram al Sharif or Temple Mount is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israeli forces also shot and killed a 17-year-old Palestinian in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Dis.
