Motorcyclists ride in support of Israel police — WATCH


Tensions have been high in and around Jerusalem for two weeks, often erupting into clashes, since two Israeli police officers were killed there, prompting Israel to install metal detectors at the entrance to the site and a subsequent Muslim boycott.

Israeli police said officers had responded after stones were thrown at officers at the gates to the site.

"At least 10,000 Palestinians preformed Friday prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque", Firas al-Dibs, a spokesman for the mosque's Waqf Council, told Anadolu Agency.

Palestinians then boycotted the holy compound for three days in protest against the new security measures, preferring to pray outside the mosque in order not to pass through the metal detectors. However, the move worsened the situation, as Palestinians and Arab countries saw it as an attempt by Israel to control the religious site.

Naftali Bennett, the leader of the right-wing Jewish Home party and a senior member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition government, criticized the removal of the security measures saying Israel had folded under pressure.

Ikrema Sabri, head of Supreme Islamic Committee, in a statement, declared: "Post Victory and comprehensive discussions, we urge all inside the country (Israel) to access Al-Aqsa Mosque". "Most of them were injured from rubber bullets and gas", - said the representative of the organization IRAB al-Fuqaha. Three Israeli civilians are stabbed and fatally wounded in a West Bank settlement.

Jews revere it as the location of two Biblical Temples and the holiest place in Judaism. It is Islam's third-holiest site after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

The attack that sparked the two-week crisis took place on July 14. "I do that with a view to the big picture".

The security measures outraged Muslims and triggered protests, and low-level clashes have continued in and around Jerusalem since then, highlighting the deep distrust between Israel and the Palestinians over the holy site. "Police say all security equipment has now been removed".

Throughout the day Israeli forces limited entry to the mosque compound to men over the age of 50.

Tension remains despite the end of a stand-off at the holy site.
