Abbas stressed the importance of an Arab and Islamic stance on the issues threatening the status of Muslim and Christian holy places in Jerusalem, urging them to support the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in the holy city.

Jerusalem Muslim leaders have called on worshippers not to go through the metal detectors, and Muslims have been converging outside the Old City's Lion's Gate for prayers instead.

According to WAFA, Abbas has made several contacts with world powers to discuss the ongoing Jerusalem tension.

Muslim worshippers are boycotting the mosques on the site, among the holiest in Islam, to protest the security measures, although they are commonplace at religious sites in the Middle East, including the adjacent Western Wall, one of the holiest sites in Judaism.

After last week's shooting, Israel closed the site for two days for searches.

The Shabak is anxious of an explosion by the protesters and has recommended to PM Netanyahu that the metal detectors be removed.

Egypt has predicted unsafe consequences of the ongoing security escalation at Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque, which has resulted in grave injuries and endangerment to the Grand Mufti, Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein.

The Palestinian militant group Hamas has called for mass protests on Friday against Israeli metal detectors placed at a contested Jerusalem holy site. Police responded when protesters threw rocks and bottles at the officers.

Palestinians view the new measures as Israel asserting further control over the site. It also supported prayers at the gates of the mosque and in the streets of Jerusalem until the metal detectors are removed.

Israel did not coordinate the changes with Jordan, which serves as the custodian of the Muslim-administered site, according to a Jordanian government official.

Muslims have been protesting outside the Temple Mount all week long, a lot of them refusing to enter the compound as long as there are metal detectors installed at the entrances. Palestinians say the attacks stem from anger over decades of Israeli occupation of territories they claim for their future state. The authority was not included in the Israeli decision to impose the security changes. "This is a measure to prevent the use of weapons on the Temple Mount, something that happened for the first time".
