- Story Text: Dozens of Palestinians clashed with Israeli soldiers on Sunday (July 23) near Qalandia checkpoint in the West Bank, over new Israeli security measures around al-Aqsa mosque.
Israeli forces dispersed the protesters who hurled stones at them.
Israel installed new security cameras at the entrance to a major Jerusalem mosque earlier on Sunday, Israeli media and witnesses said, the latest development in a controversy that triggered the bloodiest confrontations with the Palestinians in years.
Israel said on Sunday it would not remove the metal detectors whose installation outside the holy site triggered the violence, but could eventually reduce their use.
