London [U.K.], July. 22: Three Palestinians have been killed in Jerusalem amid the increasing protests against new Israeli security measures at a highly sensitive holy site.

Palestinian protests across Jerusalem and the West Bank on Friday left three Palestinians killed.

Several thousand Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank clashed with Israeli troops, burning tyres or throwing stones and firecrackers.

"A Palestinian infiltrated a private home in the community of Neve Tsuf, northwest of Ramallah, and stabbed four Israeli civilians", a statement said. A man, reportedly aged 70, and two of his children, said to be in their thirties, were murdered, while the man's wife, reportedly aged 68, was seriously wounded.

The wounded woman, 68, was hospitalised with stab wounds to her back, Israeli media said.

Indiana's construction industry, however, lost 900 jobs last month, during the traditional height of the construction season. Five industry sectors reported job declines over the month, down a total of 22,900 jobs.

Palestinians argue the security measure is a sign of creeping Israeli control over the holy site.

Earlier, Palestinian worshippers clashed with Israeli security forces.

Now, after the clashes in East Jerusalem and the settler killings, Mr Netanyahu does not want to be seen as caving into Palestinian violence, Mr Eldar said.

The unrest followed a decision by Israeli ministers not to order the removal of metal detectors erected at entrances to the compound, which includes the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, following an attack nearby a week ago that killed two policemen.

The site is know to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount.

Sanders has instead frequently taken the podium at the White House briefings, which have often been held off camera. He calls Spicer "a true American patriot" and says he hopes Spicer " goes on to make a tremendous amount of money ".

The israeli police stated that it could decide that some persons, at his discretion, did not have to go through the metal detectors.

Police Superintendent and spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter, "Names of three Israelis murdered in Friday night attack by Palestinian terrorist, Yosef Solomon age 70, Chaya Solomon age 46, Elad Solomon age 36".

In recent years, religious opinion has shifted, and growing numbers of Jews are visiting the compound.

Since 1967, Israel has increasingly cut off east Jerusalem from its West Bank hinterland, leaving the city's Arab residents without a political leadership. Roadblocks were in place on approach roads to Jerusalem to stop buses carrying Muslims to the site. Jordan, the custodian of the holy site, has also been involved in mediation efforts.
