Hamas has called for "Friday confrontations" with IDF forces in the West Bank as part of a Palestinian "day of rage" planned for the day after Thursday passed with relative calm amid nearly two weeks of violence. 

Following a security assessment on Thursday, police decided to limit entry to Muslim Friday prayers on the Temple Mount to men aged 40 years and up.

No access restriction was enforced for Muslim women.
