Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas 'is freezing contacts with Israel on all levels'

Metal detectors will stay on Temple Mount says Israeli cabinet

On Friday, Israeli security forces put additional restrictions on entry to the al-Aqsa mosque, the Guardian reported, turning away women and men over the age of 50.

At least 47 Israelis and five foreign nationals have been killed in almost two years of such attacks.

The Arab Union also condemned "police using excessive force and real bullet to disperse unprotected Palestinians".

Religious clerics from the Waqf - the Jordanian trust which manages the site - had asked every mosque in the city to close on Friday and worshippers were urged to pray outside the gates of al Aqsa rather than submit to the security procedures.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas spoke with USA counterpart Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, urging the White House to intervene, the Palestinians' official Wafa news agency reported.

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.

According to a report on Al Jazeera, the Palestinian Prisoner's Club has claimed that Jerusalem's Fatah leader, Hatem Abdel Khader, is among ten Palestinian activist who have been detained.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced he was freezing ties with Israel over the installation of metal detectors, dealing a blow to fledgling Trump administration efforts to try to renew long-dormant peace talks.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this morning decided metal detectors would not be removed, and men under 50 and barred from the mosque.

In some cases the prayers escalated into clashes with Israeli security forces.

On Saturday morning, Israeli troops searched Al Abed's family home in the West Bank village of Kobar and detained one of his brothers, the army said. "Women of all ages will be permitted", Israeli police explained.

The compound, which houses the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, was reopened on Sunday with metal detectors installed, a step Palestinians protested as a change to the longstanding status quo.

Clashes also erupted in other parts of East Jerusalem, at the Qalandia checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem, and at the northern entrance of Bethlehem.
