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

Israeli security forces stand guard in front of Palestinian Muslim worshipers praying outside Lions Gate a main entrance to the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem's Old City

The gunmen were shot dead by troops who pursued them.

The Palestinian Maan news agency and Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported that an 18-year-old Palestinian was killed in the Ras al-Amud neighbourhood during rallies prompted by Israel imposing a ban on men under 50 entering Jerusalem's Old City.

It was not immediately clear if this means long-standing security coordination between Israeli troops and Abbas' forces will be halted.

A Palestinian sneaked into a home in the West Bank Israeli settlement of Halamish after nightfall on Friday (local time) and stabbed to death three Israelis.

At least three Palestinians were killed and some 200 injured in clashes on Friday as Palestinians protested against the installation of metal detectors at the entrances to a highly sensitive holy site.

The Israel Defense Forces unit which administers the Palestinian territories said on Saturday that it was reconsidering the placement of controversial metal detectors at a Jerusalem holy site.

Water canon and tear gas were fired after rioters threw stones and other objects outside the walls of the Old City, police said.

Three Palestinians were killed and dozens taken to hospital in clashes in Jerusalem and the West Bank earlier on Friday.

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".

No, Jews still can't pray at Judaism's holiest site.

Israel chose to install the metal detectors at the entry to the shrine on Sunday.

Palestinians have largely viewed the metal detectors as a power grab.

An Israeli official confirmed to Fox News that "Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held security consultations this (Wednesday) morning about the ongoing events and will continue these discussions later today".
