Israeli sources: Three Israelis allegedly fatally stabbed near settlement colony

The three Palestinians died as several hundred were wounded when Israeli forces opened fire with live rounds and rubber bullets in street clashes in the Holy City as thousands protested following public prayers on Friday.

It follows an escalation in violence between the Israelis and Palestinians over tensions at Al Aqsa mosque compound.

The Palestinian president has suspended all contacts with Israel until metal detectors near the al Aqsa mosque are removed.

The metal detectors are perceived by the Palestinians as an encroachment on Muslim rights and portrayed by Israel as a needed security measure following an attack that killed two Israeli policemen.

Security forces prohibited Palestinian men under the age of 50 from entering Jerusalem's Old City for Friday Muslim prayers this week, .

Israeli media reported that the Palestinian attacker was shot and wounded and also taken to hospital.

Hamas said the attack was in response to the violations against the Jerusalem residents and Al-Aqsa Mosque and warned that the Israel government would bear the consequences of its "racial and radical policy" against Palestine.

The site is open for women of all ages and for men over the age of 50, Xinhua news agency quoted a police spokesperson as saying.

Muslim leaders and Palestinian political factions have urged the faithful to gather for a "day of rage" against the new security policies, which they see as changing delicate agreements that have governed the holy site for decades.

Israel, for its part, has refused to remove the detectors, claiming the security measures are similar to procedures taken at other holy sites around the world. The gunmen were shot dead by troops who pursued them.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has pledged that existing governorship agreements regarding the site "will be preserved".
