Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas freezes Israel contact over holy site dispute

Metal detectors will stay on Temple Mount says Israeli cabinet

"A few hundred Palestinians faced off against Israeli forces guarding a gate of Jerusalem's walled Old City", said NPR's Daniel Estrin, reporting from the scene.

Tensions have run high since last week, when three gunmen shot and killed two Israeli policeman near Temple Mount, a hilltop compound near the Western Wall and one of the most important holy sites in Judaism, Islam and Christianity. The Palestinian Red Crescent claims at least 113 Palestinians have been injured, while Israeli police claim four of their officers were hurt.

On Friday evening, Mr Abbas announced that he would "freeze" ties with Israel "on all levels" until the metal detectors are removed from Haram Al Sharif, but did not say whether this meant halting security co-ordination.

Israeli Government forbade under 50-year-old Palestinians to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The uncle said his nephew had been arrested three months ago by Palestinian security forces and detained for two weeks.

Palestinian media has reported that before the alleged murder, al-Abed had published a status about the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa mosque, the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem that have stirred tensions in recent weeks.

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.

Palestinians have grown furious with Israel's decision to install metal detectors at the shrine, which they see as an intrusion on their religious rights.

Several thousand Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank clashed with Israeli troops, burning tyres or throwing stones and firecrackers.

Palestinians also held prayers at West Bank military checkpoints bordering Jerusalem.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said 3,000 members of the security forces had been deployed to the area.

Palestinians argue the security measure is a sign of creeping Israeli control over the holy site.

The Israelis killed were a man and woman in their sixties and another man in his forties, according to Israeli sources.
