Tensions are running high in the holy city of Jerusalem, where three Palestinians have been killed and several dozen injured in clashes with Israeli troops.

Abbas called the measures "falsely presented as a security measure to take control over Al-Aqsa mosque".

Three Palestinian protesters were fatally shot in separate clashes in and around Jerusalem.

On Friday evening, Mr Abbas announced that he would "freeze" ties with Israel "on all levels" until the metal detectors are removed from Haram Al Sharif, but did not say whether this meant halting security co-ordination.

Six people were killed on Friday (July 21) in an outbreak of violence that erupted over Israel's placement of metal detectors at entrances to the sacred Al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem and spread to the West Bank.

Israeli police said five officers were wounded.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said reinforcements have been deployed in and around the Old City.

Iheanacho made an immediate impact for Man City in the 2015/16 campaign, scoring eight goals in 26 Premier League appearances. It remains to be seen if City decide to sell Iheanacho to Tottenham, who finished above Guardiola's men last season.


The new restrictive measures have seen the regime in Israel install metal detectors at entry points to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

A Palestinian teenager was killed during clashes in the East Al-Quds neighborhood of Ras al-Amoud, medical sources told Ma'an, as witnesses said that the youth was shot by an Israeli settler.

Israeli authorities last week canceled weekly Friday prayers for the first time in almost five decades, following a shootout that left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead.

The unrest follows revelations on Thursday that Israel's Construction and Housing Ministry is planning a further expansion of settlements which could cut off East Jerusalem from the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The Israeli police said extra units had been mobilised to bolster security in the Old City, while Muslim access to the shrine for prayers would be limited to women of all ages and men over 50.

Israel, for its part, has refused to remove the detectors, claiming the security measures are similar to procedures taken at other holy sites around the world. "Police are preventing men under the age of 50 from entering".
