Jordan urges Arab FMs to meet over Al-Aqsa Mosque tension

Christy Curtis | 23 July, 2017, 01:47

Israel installed the detectors after three Palestinians launched an attack from the shrine a week ago, killing two Israeli policemen.

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".

However, Israeli news outlets reported that three Israelis - a man and a woman in their sixties, and a man in his forties - had been killed, while another woman was being treated.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, announced he was suspending contact with Israel on "all levels", dealing a blow to recent United States attempts to renew the long-dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Abu Diab said the dispute has united Jerusalem's Palestinians who see the 15-hectare compound as their last sanctuary from Israel's 50-year occupation of the eastern part of the city.

Security forces prohibited Palestinian men under the age of 50 from entering Jerusalem's Old City for Friday Muslim prayers this week, .

Three Palestinians were killed and hundreds were hurt in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Apart from wounds from live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas, some victims said they were run over by Israeli armed forces vehicles.

Exxon Says "Egregious" Sanctions Violations Were Just a Misunderstanding
Sechin was among top Russian officials to be blacklisted by the USA for Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014. The State Department said it wasn't involved in the decision to punish Exxon for violating the sanctions.

The AP, citing Israeli media, reported that the attacker was shot and wounded.

The Palestinian Red Crescent has put the number of those injured in East Jerusalem and the West Bank at some 140 people.

They refused to enter, preferring to pray outside, in some cases filling the narrow alleyways of the Old City's Muslim quarter.

It is "unacceptable" that Israel imposed new restrictions including placing metal detectors at the entrance to the Al-Aqsa compound, President Erdogan said in a written statement released on the Presidency website.

Israeli forces are bracing for potential violence.

Israel asserts there is no change to status quo and the metal detectors are necessary to stop further attacks.

It includes the al-Aqsa Mosque, the third-holiest site in Islam, and the Dome of the Rock.
