Israel risks 'crisis with the Arab and Islamic world'

Israel risks 'crisis with the Arab and Islamic world'

Military officials said that there could possibly be more such copycat attacks in the West Bank after Friday's stabbing, which saw three civilians killed by a Palestinian suspect.

"What is happening today, unfortunately, is the completion of the project to Judaicise the Holy City and take over the old town", he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday warned of intervention by the Muslim worldwide community over the metal detectors and ensuing clashes between Palestinian protestors and the Israeli troops.

At issue in the current round of violence are metal detectors Israel installed at the Jerusalem shrine this week in response to an attack by Arab gunmen there.

Jerusalem is a "red line" and Arabs and Muslims would not accept such violations by Israeli occupation forces, the pan-Arab organisation chief said in a separate statement on Sunday.

The dog was taken to a veterinary hospital where medics discovered burns on his paws and respiratory tract injuries. Jack's family and the fire department are all grateful for that life-saving gift from two girl scouts.

Jordan has seen an outpouring of public anger against Israel in recent days, with Jordanian officials calling on it to remove the metal detectors at the Al Aqsa mosque.

An Israeli policeman aims his weapon during clashes with Palestinians in the West Bank village of Khobar near Ramallah July 22, 2017.

But public security minister Gilad Erdan has said that the metal detector checks for all Muslims could eventually be replaced with different measures, including more police officers and security cameras with facial recognition technology.

In a possible spillover of the tensions, two Jordanian men were shot dead and an Israeli wounded in a violent incident at the Israeli embassy in Amman last night.

Turkey's President Erdogan on Saturday called for an immediate end to Israel's new restrictions at the compound of Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The gunmen, all from the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm in central Israel, were subsequently shot and killed by the police. Meanwhile, worshipers have lined up in the streets, dozens at a time, to perform prayers in the streets.

Israeli security forces have raided the home of a Palestinian aggressor, the military said in a statement to Reuters.

The announcement was made by Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas' top advisor, Majdi Khaldi.

On Friday, tensions boiled over and several thousand Palestinians clashed with Israeli security forces in the West Bank and in Jerusalem after noon prayers - the centerpiece of the Muslim religious week.

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