Palestinians fear Israel is trying to retake the holy site of al Aqsa by stealth

Palestinians fear Israel is trying to retake the holy site of al Aqsa by stealth

They refused to enter, preferring to pray outside, in some cases filling the narrow alleyways of the Old City's Muslim quarter.

Jerusalem's top Muslim cleric, Mohammed Hussein, said protests, including mass street prayers outside the shrine, would continue until the devices are removed.

"If we let them, they (Israelis) will take over the mosque completely", he said, standing near the Old City. Earlier on Friday, three Palestinian men were shot dead and hundreds of others were injured in Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem.

"The murderers will never tell us how to search the murderers", Tzachi Hanegbi, Israeli minister for regional development and a senior member of the ruling Likud party, told Israel's Army Radio.

A Palestinian sneaked into a home in the West Bank Israeli settlement of Halamish after nightfall on Friday (local time) and stabbed to death three Israelis.

"Therefore we have taken a decisive and firm position especially regarding security coordination and all forms of coordination between us and them", the Palestinian president said.

Gadi Zohar, former chief Israeli military administrator for the West Bank and Gaza Strip, also called for a reassessment of the measure.

The controversy has resonated beyond Israel and the Palestinian territories, with the United States and the UN Middle East envoy expressing concern.

One security session was expected to discuss the recent implementation of metal detectors at entrances to a key holy site in the Old City.

He underlined the Islamic nature of the mosque, saying that "Al-Aqsa is and always will be a Muslim site" and could not be turned it into a Jewish site. Worshippers have been refusing to enter due to the new metal detectors, with Palestinians charging the step was an Israeli attempt to claim further control over the site.

"They (metal detectors) will remain.

During that period, Israeli forces have killed more than 255 Palestinians, majority said by Israel to be attackers".

The Associated Press said including Friday's violence, "Palestinians have killed 47 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks against civilians and soldiers". Israel's said its decision to enhance security came after two border police officers were killed in an attack at the compound a week ago.
