In Jerusalem, Israeli police have fought with Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound.
Police say they entered the courtyard to arrest young Palestinian stone throwers.
But the Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has condemned what he says was an attack against worshippers at the holy site.
The confrontation comes just hours before the start of the Jewish New Year.
