Imam of Al-Aqsa Ekrema Sabri told Anadolu Agency that the Israeli forces are now banning prayer at the mosque.

"The murderous terror attack at the Temple Mount was stopped by the courageous Israeli policemen who threw themselves in the way, and prevented an even greater disaster", said Rivlin in a statement communicated by his spokesman.

Friday noon prayers mark the highlight of the Muslim religious week.

Jews are allowed to visit, but are banned from praying there to avoid provoking tensions.

It is considered the third holiest site in Islam and the most sacred for Jews.

With the shrine off limits, the faithful lined up near Damascus Gate and other entrances to the Old City.

Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett, reporting from Jerusalem, said the Palestinians reportedly shot at Israeli security forces near the Lion Gate to the Old City.

The top Muslim cleric in the Holy Land, Mohammed Hussein, is based at the Muslim-administered shrine.

"Israeli police detained my father in a violent manner and took him to unknown destination", Omar, son of the grand mufti, told Anadolu Agency. Temple Mount reopened after three suspects killed two police officers on Friday.

Israeli police only allowed Jerusalem's Muslim residents to enter the mosque.

She said a knife, a gun and two rifles were found on the terrorists' bodies.

"It is time for the Arab leadership in Israel, and even outside it, to express a clear position against this criminal attack", the president said in a statement. Palestinian officials reject the accusation and say the violence steps from anger over Israeli occupation of land sought by Palestinians for an independent state.

In an unusual move, Israeli security forces closed the site after the exchange of gunfire at the Haram Al-Sharif.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called for "zero tolerance for terrorism" after an attack on a Jerusalem shrine Friday by three Palestinians that killed two Israeli police officers. The troops gave chase, engaged and shot the terrorists dead inside the complex.

There has been a wave of stabbings, shootings and car-rammings of Israelis predominantly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs since late 2015.
