Al Quds, There have been clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police outside Al Aqsa mosque in Al Quds, ahead of a planned Jewish nationalist march.
More than 300 Palestinians were injured, as crowds threw stones and officers fired stun grenades in response.

The latest violence follows days of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police in the nearby Sheikh Jarrah district of East Al Quds, with the possible eviction of Palestinian families from their homes there by Jewish settlers a focal point for Palestinian anger, the BBC news reported.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said more than 300 Palestinians were injured, and that at least 80 were taken to hospital for treatment. One person was in a critical condition, it added.
