This has led to further clashes: three Palestinians died during confrontations with Israeli security forces on Friday, according to media reports; three Israelis were fatally stabbed at home in a West Bank settlement, and some 30 Palestinians conducting night-time prayer near the Lion's Gate were injured during scuffles with Israeli forces on Tuesday.
