JERUSALEM - 19 July 2017: Israeli police declared Friday's Muslim prayers will not be held at Jerusalem's holiest site after two Israelis were critically wounded in a shooting near the site.
The ancient, marble-and-stone compound houses the al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest site, and the 7th century Dome of the Rock. Thousands pray there every Friday.
Police were still checking whether the gunmen, who were reportedly killed by security forces, were Palestinian, a spokesman said.
