According to the palestinian ministry of Health, a Palestinian was killed by israeli forces during clashes in the neighborhood of Al-Tur in East Jerusalem.
The attacker was reportedly shot by a neighbor; his condition is unclear. Tensions had mounted for days as Palestinians hurled rocks and Israeli police used stun grenades after the detectors were placed outside the sacred venue, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as Temple Mount.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas cut off all official contacts with Israel over the detectors, and the measures have been condemned by majority-Muslim countries. The clashes on Friday - the day designated for a special Muslim congregational prayer - turned out to be especially brutal and left three protesting Palestinians dead.
The metal detectors were put in place following a gun and knife attack near the holy compound that killed two Israeli policemen on July 14.
Three Israeli settlers were killed Friday in an alleged stabbing attack in the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military. It is the holiest Jewish site and the third holiest in Islam.

He urged Israeli and Palestinian leaders to refrain from actions that could further escalate the volatile situation in Jerusalem's Old City, saying that religious sites should be spaces for reflection, not violence.
Israel captured East Jerusalem, along with its holy sites, from Jordan in the 1967 war and then annexed the area in a move that was never internationally recognized.
The hilltop compound has always been a source of religious friction.
The israeli police stated that it could decide that some persons, at his discretion, did not have to go through the metal detectors.
