Seven Israelis and 31 Palestinians, including children and assailants, have been killed in two weeks of bloodshed in Israel, Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. The violence has been partly triggered by Palestinians' anger over what they see as increased Jewish encroachment on Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound, also revered by Jews as the site of two destroyed Jewish temples.

Three Palestinians were killed on Friday during clashes in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, medics reported.

Israeli fire killed one Palestinian during clashes in Beit Furik near Nablus in the occupied West Bank and wounded five others, Palestinian medics said, as protests erupted in various areas. 19, was the 37th Palestinian killed since an upsurge in violence began at the start of the month.

Meanwhile, two Palestinian died after being shot by the Israeli military in the Gaza Strip, the enclave’s health ministry said, the latest such incidents in more than two weeks of clashes and attacks.

Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP that Abdul Qadir Farhat, 19, died “after he was shot directly in the head by the military in clashes close to the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing” in northern Gaza. Mahmud Homaida, 22, was confirmed dead later in the day in clashes along the border.

The health ministry reported 98 others wounded, including those shot or exposed to tear gas.

Violent protests that first began in annexed east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank have spread to Gaza in recent days.

The series of attacks and violent protests have raised fears of a full-scale Palestinian uprising. The continued violence also have led the U.N. Security Council to hold an emergency meeting.

During the meeting, the Palestinian U.N. envoy Riyadh Mansour urged the Security Council to end Israeli aggression and requested protection for his people.

Mansour also accused Israel of turning the struggle into a “religious conflict.”

“When will this occupation end, when will Palestinians have their own state,” Mansour told the U.N., urging its members for a two-state solution.

Meanwhile, the Israeli U.N. envoy accused the Palestinians to launching “terrorist attacks” and a stabbing wave targeting civilians.

Both the assistant for the Secretary General and Jordan’s envoy said continued violence in Palestinian territories will heighten tension in Mideast.
