There have been nightly confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli police using stun grenades in Israeli-annexed East Jerusalem since the devices were placed on Sunday at entrances to Haram Al-Sharif which houses Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Palestinian factions have called for marches all over the West Bank on Wednesday in protest against the Israeli security procedures at al-Aqsa mosque.

Protests and scuffles between demonstrators and Israeli police have erupted outside the holy site in Jerusalem's Old City on previous nights.

Arab-Israeli lawmakers joined the protesters and called for the metal detectors at the site to be removed.

Tensions remain high ahead of Friday prayers when thousands of Muslims usually flock to Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third holiest site.

In a televised speech Thursday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh urged Palestinians to participate in a "day of rage" against the stepped up security measures, which were imposed after Palestinian gunmen killed two Israeli police at the site last week.

"The situation is very fragile and sensitive", said Yesh Atid MK Yaakov Peri, a former head of Israel's Shin Bet security agency, in comments distributed by The Israel Project. The authorities began arresting one of the worshipers for "disturbing the peace" which led the larger crowd to start throwing water bottles at police officers.

Jewish visitors to Jerusalem's Temple Mount on Monday did something that many are calling a prophetic breakthrough-they prayed, openly and without harassment.

The fate of the compound, holy to both Jews and Muslims, is an emotional issue and forms the centerpiece of rival Israeli and Palestinian national narratives. The police want the metal detectors to stay put. Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the security measures "are to ensure and prevent further incidents or attacks" and would continue.

On Tuesday it emerged that King Salman of Saudi Arabia passed on a message to Israel via Washington that the compound, which had been closed for several days following Friday's attack, should be reopened to worshippers. Any perceived changes to the delicate arrangements at the site can spark tensions.

Netanyahu's office responded that Israel would "take all the necessary actions to maintain security on the Temple Mount, without changing the status quo", the New York Times reported.
