- Story Text: Palestinians clashed with Israeli forces across the West Bank on Friday (July 21) over security arrangements at a sensitive holy site.
In Gaza Hamas leaders and supporters flocked to the streets in solidarity with Palestinians in Jerusalem and chanted in support of Al-Aqsa.
During the clashes Israeli forces sprayed Palestinians who were throwing stones with skunk water and fired tear gas grenades toward them.
There have been daily confrontations between Palestinians hurling rocks and Israeli police using stun grenades since metal detectors were placed at the entrance to the shrine, known to Muslims as Al-Aqsa compound and to Jews as Temple Mount, on Sunday, following the killing of two Israeli policemen.
