  • US Ambassador to Israel condemns Halamish attack

The occupied Palestinian territories have witnessed new tensions ever since Israeli forces introduced restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem al-Quds in August 2015.

The guard's version of events differs from other accounts that suggested the stabbing was motivated by a row over the late delivery of furniture.

A media report has suggested that such railings could be part of a compromise that would enable the removal of the metal detectors.

Two Jordanians have been killed and one Israeli wounded in a shooting incident in a building within the Israeli embassy complex in Jordan's capital, Amman.

On Monday Israel thanked Jordan for its "close co-operation".

The relatively swift end to the stand-off signalled progress towards ending the crisis over the contested shrine.

Jordan is the official custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem.

Family members said officials from the Jordanian government, including the prime minister and officers from the General Intelligence Department, have visited the family to pay their respects.

About 4,500 homes and businesses in Mariposa are threatened by the fire, and thousands of residents evacuated Tuesday. The fire, named the Detwiler fire, started Sunday afternoon and has been growing since to encompass 20,000 acres.

Jordan's public prosecutor was quoted on state news agency Petra as saying the Israeli security guard was charged under local penal laws with one count of murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

He says that "what is being done now is using the fight against terrorism as a pretext to take al-Aqsa Mosque from the hands of Muslims".

The killings have lead to diplomatic tensions between Amman and Tel Aviv, prompting Israel to pull out large number of its embassy staff from Amman. You acted appropriately - logically and with determination.

Seven people have died after violence over the security measures.

Though the metal detectors were removed, hundreds of Palestinians are protesting against the cameras that remain at the site, Al Jazeera reported. Abbas deserves an entire column of his own detailing his irresponsibility in almost every aspect of this drama, including his continuing dissembling over alleged threats to the Temple Mount status quo and his shockingly irresponsible and unsafe invitation to the Tanzim militia to lead mass protests this Friday.

The Israeli foreign ministry did not comment.

At the United Nations, Mideast envoy Nikolay Mladenov warned of an escalation if the crisis over the metal detectors isn't resolved by the time of Muslim prayers Friday.

After briefing the UN Security Council behind closed doors on Monday, Nikolay Mladenov said it was "critically important" that the status quo which had been in place at the site since 1967 was preserved.
