Palestinian leader halts security co-operation with Israel

Israel's restrictions on the Al Aqsa Compound get Palestinians protesting at Times Square in New York

Muslim religious leaders alleged Israel was trying to expand its control at the compound under the guise of security, a claim Israel denied.

On Saturday Israel sent extra troops into the occupied West Bank and its police broke up a crowd of stone-throwing Palestinians in Jerusalem. "They should know that they will eventually lose, because we have been making it our solemn duty to keep up security on our side here and on theirs".

"In these days we are examining options and additional alternatives [to the metal detectors] that will ensure safety and prevent a terror attack from happening again", Maj.

The mood was grim in East Jerusalem on Sunday as Palestinians voiced concern over the deadliest outbreak of violence between Israel and Palestinians for years.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said it was treating three Palestinians who were shot with rubber bullets, six who suffered tear gas inhalation, and one who fell during the Qalandia clashes. 70-year old Yosef Salomon and his children Chaya and Eldad, 46 and 35 respectively, were murdered in the family's dining room where Yosef's 68-year old wife, Tova was seriously wounded, all at the hand of Omar Al-Abed, a 19-year old Palestinian from the nearby village of Kobar.

A neighbour, an off-duty soldier, heard the screams, rushed to the home and opened fire, wounding the attacker. Israelis were shocked by photographs released by the army that showed the kitchen floor of the home covered with blood. "There is no justification for murdering a grandfather at a party to celebrate the birth of his new grandson", said Oded Revivi, the chief foreign envoy of the Yesha settlers' council.

Netanyahu was also holding a cabinet meeting and was due to meet with his security cabinet later in the day, reported AFP.

The meeting to be held on Monday, Egyptian and Swedish diplomats said on Saturday, according to Ahram Online. "It's not like the security coordination is an Israeli need".

Jordan's official ties with Israel remain deeply unpopular in the kingdom, which has a large Palestinian population.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday faced mounting pressure over new security measures at a sensitive Jerusalem holy site after a weekend of violence left eight people dead, with fears that more unrest could follow. Halting security co-ordination with Israel would have far-reaching repercussions and could sharply raise tensions.

Israeli officials have said they will not remove metal detectors from outside a Jerusalem mosque, despite their installation triggering rapidly escalating confrontations with Palestinians.
