The report fails to mention the numerous peace offers that the Palestinian Authority has rejected or the fact that past Israeli concessions unleashed even more Arab terror and violence.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said that two people were injured there and brought to the hospital for treatment.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned a Palestinian knife attack in a West Bank settlement that claimed the lives of three members of an Israeli family.

Tensions and violent confrontations between Palestinians and Israelis in Jerusalem and beyond have been ongoing for almost a week as Muslim worshippers protest Israel's placement of metal detectors inside Jerusalem's Al Aqsa Mosque compound - Islam's third holiest site.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Friday he is freezing ties with Israel until the devices are removed.

Muslims take part in a protest against Israel's new security measures at the entrance to the al-Aqsa mosque compound, in Gaza City July 21, 201.

The military says about 50 people hurled rocks at Israeli troops in the West Bank village of Kobar as they were searching the home of the attacker.

An Israeli television channel has reported that Israeli Minister of Internal Front Gilad Erdan revealed on Tuesday that the electronic detectors were placed at the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque after consultations made with Arab and Islamic countries.

The Temple Mount/Noble Sanctuary was closed after last Friday's attack, and reopened Sunday for worshippers, visitors and tourists, with added security measures. A Jordanian man later died of his wounds, a security official said.

"We've managed for many years without security cooperation, we'll manage now as well", Liberman said.

Israel will not remove metal detectors whose installation outside a major Jerusalem mosque has triggered the bloodiest confrontations with the Palestinians in years, but could eventually reduce their use. "It's Palestinian leadership - Fatah and Hamas - that incites violence against Israelis on a daily basis".

It is "unacceptable" that Israel imposed new restrictions including placing metal detectors at the entrance to the Al-Aqsa compound, President Erdogan said in a written statement released on the Presidency website.

Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit yesterday accused Israel of "playing with fire" with the new security measures.
