At least one Palestinian was killed and dozens were hurt in clashes with Israeli police at the Temple Mount. Police presence in Jerusalem was virtually unprecedented on Friday as prayers and protests on the Temple Mount turned violent. The security cabinet decided early on Friday that controversial metal detectors installed outside the holy site in the wake of a shooting attack that left two policemen dead last week will remain in place. According to Palestinians, tens

of thousands of worshippers came to pray outside the Temple Mount gates, refusing to pass through the metal detectors installed there and in response to calls by Muslim leaders. According to Palestinian reports, a Palestinian has been seriously wounded in Friday’s clashes, this time in A-Tur in East Jerusalem.
