Clashes erupt in Jerusalem during ceasefire

Israeli security forces and Palestinians have clashed at an Islamic holy site in Jerusalem, leaving some people injured. The violence comes amid a ceasefire between Israel and the Islamist group Hamas that took effect on Friday.

The clashes broke out following Friday prayers at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem's Old City.

There are concerns the incident could trigger further violence, as clashes there were a major cause of the latest deadly conflict.

No other fighting between the two sides has been reported since the truce came into effect.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has touted the success of Israeli attacks targeting Hamas.

Speaking at a news conference, he warned that Israelis will respond strongly against any aggression by the Islamist group. Israel continues to deploy ground troops around Gaza.

The death toll in Gaza from the fighting that erupted on May 10 has reached 243, including 66 children. A child and 11 adults have died on the Israeli side.
