Palestinians clashed with Israeli forces across the West Bank on Friday over security arrangements at a sensitive holy site.
In Gaza, Hamas leaders and supporters flocked to the streets in solidarity with Palestinians in Jerusalem and chanted in support of Al-Aksa.
"Today we are acting to bring the Al-Aksa Mosque and Jerusalem back into the embrace of the the Arab World," Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said during his weekly sermon in Gaza. "We shall not enter the Temple Mount through metal detectors."
