Younger worshipers gathered outside Israeli police barricades, praying in the midday sun.

At least 140 Jewish extremist settlers guarded by occupation forces stormed Sunday Al Aqsa Mosque through Al Magarba gate and carried out provocative acts inside the mosque, the MENA news agency reported. But Palestinian politicians and Muslim clerics had insisted Israel restore the situation at the shrine to what it was before the attack.

The Palestinian Red Crescent recorded 52 injuries in total, including 22 from live or rubber bullets. Also coupled to these facts are the furious hatred and incitements from Arab-Palestinian leadership, Hamas, and the Muslim world.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said security force personnel prevented ambulances from getting to the scene to treat the man, who was left bleeding from several bullet wounds.

Israel had refused to remove the detectors, claiming the security measures were similar to procedures taken at other holy sites around the world.

The security measures outraged Muslims and triggered protests, and low-level clashes have continued in and around Jerusalem since then, highlighting the deep distrust between Israel and the Palestinians over the holy site. These were simple measures for the Temple Mount: metal detectors and security cameras. Tens of thousands of tourists from Muslim and Arab countries visited the Israeli capital last year, with Indonesia and Turkey topping the list.

"Over the last two weeks, we received a glimpse of the depths to which Netanyahu's behavior can fall". The decision to install the measures, seen as a unilateral step by Israel, angered the Muslim community in Jerusalem and the region.

Protesters wave Turkish and Palestinian flags as they hold placards reading 'Our hearts beat for Jerusalem' during a demonstration yesterday.

The United States lauded "the efforts undertaken to de-escalate tensions in Jerusalem".

Israeli police officers clash with Palestinians inside the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds on July 27, 2017.

Another Palestinian، Mahla Gusha، called on all Muslims to go to the mosque.

Following days of deliberations, Israel removed the extra security measures.

"Seven others were injured in clashes that occurred in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Hebron and Tulkarem".

Israel، after facing international condemnation، removed the detectors on Friday.

The restrictive measures sparked criticism worldwide, with Palestinians saying that the bans were meant to expand the regime's control over the holy site and change its status quo.

Cameras are already widespread in Jerusalem's Old City.

He is also being investigated in Case 2000 for an alleged media bribery scheme to help Yediot Aharonot newspaper against its competitor Yisrael Hayom in return for favorable coverage of the prime minister.

In 2000, a visit to the compound by then Israeli opposition leader Ariel Sharon helped ignite the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising.
