Islamic leaders call for mass protests in response to the new security measures
Israeli police have banned Muslim men under the age of 50 from al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
The ban comes ahead of feared mass protests over the installation of metal detectors aimed at increasing security at the site.
Muslim leaders have called for mass protests at Friday’s noon prayers.
The shrine is revered by both Muslims and Jews.
Muslim leaders say Israel is trying to expand its control there by installing the security devices.
