Israel deployed police in force in Jerusalem Friday for weekly Muslim prayers and restricted access to a flashpoint mosque, after a deadly attack by a Palestinian sent tensions soaring, Al Arabiya reported.
Clashes broke out for a second night after the Palestinian ploughed his car into a crowd of pedestrians on Wednesday, killing a baby and injuring six other people before he was shot dead by police.
The security presence was boosted across east Jerusalem and its Old City after the confrontations between security forces and stonethrowing Palestinians, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
Palestinian men under the age of 40 would not be allowed into Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque compound for Friday prayers because of fears of further unrest, she said.
The compound in east Jerusalem is the scene of frequent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police.
