Three Palestinians killed as protests rage over al-Aqsa

Clashes continue to rage between Israeli forces and Palestinian demonstrators across occupied territories.

At least three Palestinians have been killed, according to local media, and hundreds more injured amid mass protests over new Israeli security measures at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

At least 140 Palestinians have been injured in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The protests come a week after a deadly gun battle at the occupied East Jerusalem compound, which triggered tensions.
