Arab League: Israel is playing with fire in Jerusalem

Anger has spilled over across the West Bank since last week when Israel shut the Al-Aqsa Mosque, revered by both Muslims and Jews, who call it Temple Mount, following a deadly shootout.

In a speech on Palestinian television, Abbas condemned new security measures put in place at Al-Aqsa mosque.

He adds that he wants to see the Israeli military ceasing all incursions into Palestinian cities.

Three Palestinians were killed and 400 wounded in clashes following Friday's massive Muslim prayers and protests over security measures and restricting access to Temple Mount in East Jerusalem.

Micky Rosenfeld, police spokesman, said a 3,000-member security force has been sent to the area to handle any potential trouble.

The incident occurred amidst widespread Israeli-Palestinian clashes over the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, East Jerusalem's most contested site. Israeli media reports said the attacker was shot but survived.

Al Aqsa Mosque is believed to be the third-holiest site for Sunni Muslims, after the cities of Mecca and Medina.

Israel says the three Israeli Arabs involved in the 14 July shooting near the compound were able to smuggle guns inside and that the new security measures are needed to stop similar attacks.

The Israeli government's decision to introduce metal detectors rapidly became a source of friction and a symbolic rallying cry in the contest for control and sovereignty over the sacred compound.

Earlier on Friday (local time), thousands of Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank clashed with Israeli troops, burning tyres and throwing stones and firecrackers.

Hundreds of worshippers gathered at various entrances, but refused to enter, preferring to pray outside.

The assailant's father said Saturday that he thought his son was upset with the loss of Palestinian lives in the ongoing violence in Jerusalem, as well as wanting to protect "honor" of the holy site in Jerusalem, AP reported.
