It is the worst violence to strike the region since the Gaza war last year, fuelling talk of a new Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, against Israel's occupation.

Israel says the current spate of violence is due to a Palestinian campaign of lies and incitement surrounding the holy site, which is revered by Muslims and Jews. The Palestinians say the violence is rooted in frustration over nearly a half-century of occupation and they accuse Israel of using excessive force to suppress the unrest.
