New clashes erupted Monday in the West Bank and east Jerusalem while Israel's military shot dead a 13-year-old Palestinian after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged a crackdown following attacks that killed four Israelis.As part of security measures following the recent attacks, Jerusalem's Old City remained closed to Palestinians for a second straight day.Jewish settlers have also clashed with Palestinians.The rioting has followed attacks in recent days that have killed four Israelis and wounded several others, including a two-year-old child. In a rare and drastic move, Israel barred Palestinians from Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday after two Israelis were stabbed to death there.Around 300,000 Palestinians live in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, where the Old City is located.On Saturday night, a 19-year-old Palestinian killed two Israelis in the Old City and wounded a child before being shot dead by police, prompting a further security clampdown.Palestinians have widely seen the shooting as unjustified, pointing to Jewish extremists chanting "Death to Arabs" on the streets of Jerusalem after Saturday night's attack in the Old City.
