As Israel continues deadly crackdown in occupied east Jerusalem and the West Bank, Palestinians continue protests in the Old City against Israeli occupation

Four more Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank late on Saturday, according to the Palestinian ministry of health, amid the recent Israeli escalation against the Palestinians. 

On Friday, three Palestinians aged between 17 and 20 were killed and more than 200 were injured when occupation forces attacked worshippers outside the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem following Friday prayers.

The closure of Al-Aqsa compound, as well as Israel's installation of metal detectors at its entrances earlier last week, triggered clashes in East Jerusalem and elsewhere in the West Bank as Palestinians continue to protest against Israeli efforts to Judiacize the city they want as a capital for a future state.

Israel's recent closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to Palestinians for Friday prayers was the first such move since Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967.
