More than 900 Palestinians wounded in al-Aqsa clashes
More than two dozen Palestinians were wounded in fresh clashes on Sunday night; 21 people were injured at Bab Al-Asbat (Lion's Gate), outside al-Aqsa, 15 of them shot with rubber-coated bullets, reported the Palestinian Red Crescent.
There were also clashes at the Qalandiya checkpoint, located between Jerusalem and Ramallah, where ten people were injured.
Three people were shot by rubber bullets, six suffered from tear gas inhalation, and one person from a fall, the Red Crescent said.
International human rights groups have long condemned Israel's use of such bullets.
Palestinian Red Crescent also said it treated 15 people who were injured by tear gas inhalation in Abu Dis.Violence erupted on July 14 after Israeli authorities installed metal detectors at the entrance to al-Aqsa mosque - the third holiest site in Islam.
The recent violence, which has seen five Palestinians killed and three Israeli settlers stabbed to death, has also triggered international alarm and condemnation.
The UN Security Council is expected to hold a closed-door meeting on Monday, while the Arab League said Israel was "playing with fire".
