Israel reopened access to the Al Aqsa Mosque to Palestinian women and men over 50 years old for Friday prayers, but security forces are on alert after Fatah and Hamas called for 'a day of rage.'
Police said the Palestinian man attempted to assassinate Yehuda Glick, a controversial rabbi who advocates for greater Jewish access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City, a holy site for both Muslims and Jews.
The new truce is to last through Monday. Talks in Cairo on ending the conflict in Gaza mark the first time Israel and Hamas have negotiated, albeit indirectly, on something other than prisoner exchanges.
An Israeli promise to refrain from shelling most of Gaza today to allow for humanitarian aid was met by reports of airstrikes, setting off recriminations.
