Al-Quds reported Israeli forces opened live rounds and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinian protestors near Jayyous town and Hizma town, northeast of Jerusalem, seriously injuring a child and a young man.
Palestinian U.N. envoy Riyad Mansour told reporters: "We are against violence. and we want the Security Council to have the political will to protect the Palestinian people against such violence from the Israeli occupying authority".
Here are some answers to questions on the issue.
Israel began installing metal detectors at the gates of the compound, saying extra measures were needed to prevent further attacks. Three Israelis were also killed in an attack in a settlement in the West Bank.
The 37-acre (15-hectare) compound, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount, has been a lightning rod for the rival religious and national narratives of the two sides and has triggered major confrontations in the past. They have refused to enter the compound in protest and have prayed in the streets outside instead.
Why Are Palestinians So Angry About the Move?.
However, the Israeli government has come under growing diplomatic pressure in recent days to reconsider the decision. It sits in East Jerusalem, a territory Israel has occupied since the 1967 Six-Day War, and is considered the holiest site in Judaism.
Israel's military sent reinforcements and put security on high alert across Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank on Saturday, as several deaths the day before stoked fears of escalating violence over a holy site.
But the dispute goes deeper. In light of the recently installed metal detectors in Al-Aqsa mosque compound, similar detectors had been placed in front of the wall and set on fire to symbolize objection to monitoring movement into and out of the mosque.
When Israel captured the area, it committed itself to that agreement.
The Palestinian health ministry said one Palestinian was killed during a separate clash outside the city, taking the death toll from the past two days to seven.
They continued on Saturday, leaving two more Palestinians dead, including one when a petrol bomb exploded prematurely. Israel's minister of public security said Sunday taht metal detect.
What Are the Politicians Doing?.
"Since the start of the events, I have held a series of assessments with security elements including those in the field", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.
He is meeting senior cabinet members to examine a way forward, with signs that alternatives, such as face-recognition cameras or selective searches, might be proposed.
Jordan is the Muslim custodian of the site.
The Quartet comprises the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations.
Washington sent Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump's special representative for worldwide negotiations, to Israel on Sunday evening in hopes of helping to reduce tensions, a senior administration official said.
Israel says the measures are necessary to prevent further attacks while Palestinians claim Israel is trying to expand its control.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suspended all contacts between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government Friday in protest of the metal detectors.
Israel had erected metal detectors at the gates to the Muslim-administered site last week, after Arab gunmen killed two Israeli police guards there.
Palestinians see it very differently.
Coordination between Israeli troops and Abbas-loyal forces in the West Bank, largely against common foe Hamas, has been a constant in frequently hostile Israeli-Palestinian relations.
An Israeli military official said they are "evaluating and assessing what the declarations mean on the ground", calling it a "complex reality".
