Palestinian protesters clash with Israeli security

Israeli police clashed with Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem's Old City, the occupied West Bank and Gaza on Friday, reflecting growing tensions over an increase in Jewish visits to the al-Aqsa mosque compound.

Palestinian militants and youth groups have called for a general uprising in response to the entry by Jewish groups under police escort to the Jerusalem holy site, which is revered by both Muslims and Jews. (REUTERS)
