Three Palestinians killed, dozens injured in clashes with Israeli troops in Jerusalem

Dozens of Palestinians been injured in clashes with Israeli forces in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank amid friction over a Jerusalem holy site.

Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian official, described the placement of metal detectors, as well as security cameras, at the entrances to the Al Aqsa mosque compound as "a flagrant violation of the rights and freedoms of Palestinian Muslim worshippers".

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas on Friday announced a freeze of all contacts with Israel over violence in Jerusalem.

Three Israelis reportedly were killed and one wounded in a stabbing attack in a West Bank settlement north of Ramallah.

On Thursday, Israeli occupation police said they were barring men under 50 from entering Jerusalem's Old City for Friday Muslim prayers as tensions rose over new Israeli security measures at mosque.

Palestinian protesters clashed with police at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City.

The Associated Press said including Friday's violence, "Palestinians have killed 47 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks against civilians and soldiers".

In response, Israel put Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque on total shutdown for two days and canceled last week's Friday prayers for the first time in nearly two decades.

COGAT also responded to the decision by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to halt ties with Israel until the metal detectors are removed.

The Israeli channel also said that al-Abed left an online statement that he felt obligated to take action after the recent attacks by Israeli forces against Palestinians and the al-Aqsa mosque, but IMEMC has not verified that statement.

Apart from wounds from live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas, some victims said they were run over by Israeli armed forces vehicles. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says "Israeli police can decide on the level of checks".

Israel, for its part, has refused to remove the detectors, claiming the security measures are similar to procedures taken at other holy sites around the world.
