- Story Text: The Israeli army prepared to evict about a hundred hardline Jewish settlers who hunkered down in a disputed building in the West Bank city of Hebron on Wednesday (July 26).
Tensions were already high after Israel installed metal detectors at entry points to Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem after two police guards were fatally shot on July 14, setting off the bloodiest clashes between Israelis and Palestinians in years.
The spike in tensions and the deaths of three Israelis and four Palestinians in violence on Friday and Saturday raised international alarm and prompted a session of the United Nations Security Council to consider ways of defusing the crisis.
