Indonesia condemns Israeli crackdown on holy mosque

Sweden, Egypt and France requested the meeting to "urgently discuss how calls for de-escalation in Jerusalem can be supported", Sweden's deputy United Nations ambassador, Carl Skau, posted on Twitter.

Three Palestinians were killed and dozens wounded on Friday as clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli forces over new security measures at an ultra-sensitive Jerusalem holy site where police restricted access for Muslim prayers.

The unrest came after Israeli ministers decided not to order the removal of metal detectors erected at entrances to the Haram al-Sharif compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, following an attack nearby a week ago that killed two policemen.

Late on Friday evening, a 20-year-old Palestinian identified as Omar al-Abed jumped over the fence of the Halamish settlement and entered a home, and stabbed four members of a family, killing three of them.

Two Palestinians were martyred in clashes with Israeli occupation forces Saturday over restrictive Israeli measures at Al-Aqsa holy Mosque. Eli Bin, the head of Israel's rescue service MDA, said an off-duty soldier next door heard screams, rushed to the home and shot the attacker through a window.

The UN has called for de-escalation of violence and tensions in Jerusalem.

If the security agreement were suspended, it would mean that Israel would have to deploy thousands of its own police in cities across the West Bank, something that would be even less popular with Palestinians than the agreement itself.

"I expect a popular, general intifada", he said using the term that refers to Palestinian uprisings from 1987 to 1993 and from 2000 to 2005.

Muslims alleged Israel was trying to expand its control at the Muslim-administered site under the guise of security - a claim Israel denies - and launched mass prayer protests.

In one instance, a CNN team outside Herod's Gate saw Israeli police start forcefully pushing worshipers back and pointing their weapons at them.

Given the popular outrage over the metal detectors, widely viewed by Palestinians as a step towards Israel taking control of Al Aqsa, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas should not be expected to intervene to try to limit confrontations with Israeli forces, the analysts added.

Three Arab-Israeli assailants carried out the attack and were shot dead.

The report detailed several lone-offender attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, as it does every year. He spoke by telephone with both Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Thursday.

Police installed metal detectors at various entrances to the complex following the deadly shooting.

When the compound was reopened two days later, Palestinians and Waqf officials refused to enter, objecting to metal detectors installed by Israel. The teenage attacker was wounded and taken to the hospital in moderate condition.

Ismail Haniyeh, leader of the Hamas movement, called on Palestinian demonstrators to confront Israeli troops along the enclave's border on Friday.

While Israel safeguards the flow of Muslim worshippers to the third most holy shrine in Islam, and reduces any Jewish presence on Judaism's most holy site, too many people choose deliberately to make inflammatory statements.
