Friday prayers at Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque went ahead peacefully despite tensions in the holy city, but Palestinians later wounded two Jews as they walked to worship not far away.After Israel dropped age restrictions for attending Friday prayers for the second week running, tens of thousands of people made their way to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Arab East Jerusalem.The Palestinians have been infuriated by a far-right Jewish campaign for prayer rights at the compound that threatens an ultra-sensitive, decades-old status quo under which Jews may visit but not pray.In the West Bank city of Hebron, hundreds of Palestinians heeded a call from Hamas for a "day of rage" in Jerusalem and the West Bank.In Berlin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel rejected the idea of Germany recognizing Palestine as a state unilaterally, saying the Palestinians and Israel could solve their long-running conflict only through negotiations.
