Israeli forces kill Palestinian man over alleged car-ramming attack

Meanwhile, dozens of Palestinians were injured on Monday evening, when Israeli forces violently dispersed Muslim worshipers who were performing evening prayers in the streets outside al-Aqsa Mosque compound in opposition to increased Israeli security measures at the holy site, which include installing metal detectors and cameras, following the deadly shooting attack.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement warned in a statement on Sunday afternoon that Israel will pay the price for the aggression and measures taken in al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing that Palestinians will defend al-Aqsa.

At least 50 Muslim Arab rioters and one Israeli police officer were reportedly wounded.

Jordan's stance is that anything installed at the site must be approved by the Waqf, or Muslim administration, and can not change the status quo, said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the still developing situation with reporters.

Parliament set for stormy monsoon session from today
The Prime Minister also called on all the party to support the war against corruption, which has been initiated by the government. To counter the opposition's onslaught, the government is also gearing up.

Three Arab Israeli assailants opened fire on Israeli police Friday in Jerusalem's Old City before fleeing to the nearby Haram al-Sharif, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, where they were shot dead by security forces.

Israel blames Palestinian leaders for incitement to violence while the Palestinians charge Israel's military occupation and attempts to change the delicate status quo at the contested holy site as the factors behind the violent attacks.

Jews are allowed to visit but not pray there to avoid provoking tensions. Police reopened the site on Sunday, but placed metal detectors in front of its gates, which it says are meant for security.

Jerusalem police commissioner Yoram Halevi said on the Israel Radio that Jerusalem is now quiet, and defended security checks.

Rights renounced by Pistons
The Detroit Pistons acquired guard Avery Bradley from the Boston Celtics in exchange for forward Marcus Morris , the Pistons said on Friday.

The area is home to the Western Wall - which was part of the walls around the Second Jewish Temple and is one of the holiest places for Jews to pray - and the Dome of the Rock, where Muslims believe the Prophet Mohammed ascended to heaven. 'I assume that with time they will understand that this is not bad, ' he told Army Radio.

"When I go shopping on Friday I pass through a detector at the mall", Halevy said.

The Palestinians fear Israel is trying to retake control of the site by stealth. The situation became even more acute last Friday when Palestinian gunmen turned their homemade submachine guns on Israeli policemen guarding the Temple Mount, killing two and wounding another.

Oil Prices Rise on Better Demand
