Palestinians are to hold a "Day of Rage" Friday in protest against Israeli security measures imposed at Jerusalem's holy site, Al-Haram al-Sharif compound, coinciding with the main weekly Muslim prayers.As tensions mounted Thursday evening, 22 Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli security forces, two of them seriously after being hit by rubber bullets, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent. The new security measures were put in place following the gun and knife attack Friday last week near the site that killed two Israeli policemen. Three 1948 Palestinian attackers fled to the compound after the attack, where they were shot dead by security forces. Israel initially closed the site for two days following the attack in a highly unusual move, shutting it for last Friday's prayers.
