Israel bars men under 50 from Jerusalem Old City prayers

Israel bars men under 50 from Jerusalem Old City prayers

In the past two years, Palestinian attackers have killed 45 Israelis.

It was not immediately clear if this means the Palestinians are halting their long-standing security coordination with Israel.

They asked every mosque in the city to close and worshippers were urged to instead pray outside the gates of al Aqsa rather than submit to the security procedures.

The AP, citing Israeli media, reported that the attacker was shot and wounded.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, announced he was suspending contact with Israel on "all levels", dealing a blow to recent U.S. attempts to renew the long-dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Humanitarian organisation Palestinian Red Crescent told Ma'an, a Palestinian news agency, that at least 113 Palestinians had been injured in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

On Friday, three Palestinians reportedly were killed in clashes between rioters and police in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The attack in Neve Tsuf, north of Ramallah, came after a day of clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli forces over new security measures at a highly sensitive Jerusalem holy site.

The decision to install the metal detectors at the entry point to the shrine in Jerusalem's walled Old City on Sunday was made after the killing of two Israeli policemen on July 14.

A hospital in Jerusalem reported to the Associated Press that a second man was killed by live fire after demonstrations led to clashes following Friday noon prayers.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said 3,000 members of the security forces had been deployed to the area. "Yesterday Israeli forces further shot the Grand Mufti Sheikh Ikrama Sabri with rubber bullets, who is now hospitalised, and injured scores of others", said Ismail Patel, the group's chairman.

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

Despite global pressure to remove the metal detectors, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet decided in Friday's early hours to keep them in place, saying they were needed to prevent arms being smuggled into the shrine.
