United Nations chief deplores Israeli killing of Palestinians in Jerusalem

Two Palestinians were killed Saturday during clashes with israeli security forces in the occupied west bank, said the palestinian ministry of Health.

In addition, Guterres has called for a full investigation into Friday's violent crackdown by Israeli police.

"The Secretary-General is concerned by the unfolding violence in the Old City of Jerusalem".

United Nations deputy spokesman, Farhan Haq quoted Guterres, saying that he "deeply deplores" the killing of three young Palestinian men while they protested the new security measures at the Al Aqsa mosque compound on Friday. "He urges Israeli and Palestinian leaders to refrain from actions that could further escalate the situation and calls on all political, religious and community leaders to help reduce tension", he said. The measures include installing metal detectors at the gate to the shrine and barring men under 50 from entering the site.

Police say a Palestinian attacker also killed three Israelis at a West Bank settlement.

These new security measures have been taken following a deadly attack against the israeli police on the 14th of July, near this site ultra-sensitive to the old town.

Several countries have condemned Israel's increased control, including Turkey, Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon. He added that he hoped the violence would be motivation for "unity and solidarity instead of division".
