Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have met for the first time since 2010, but both sides are guarded about what will be discussed.
Just seven months after being released from jail the leader of an outlawed Islamic movement has been arrested again. It was unclear if the arrest was linked to recent violence surrounding the Temple Mount holy site.
The atmosphere has grown increasingly tense as every day the death toll in the Temple Mount crisis grows. Israel has the power to stop it and must return to reason, argues Tim Assmann.
Israel has again banned men under 50 from entering the contentious holy site in Jerusalem for Friday prayers. The move comes after more than 100 people were injured in clashes.
King Abdullah II has flown to the West Bank to meet with Palestinian President Abbas for the first time in five years. The trip is being viewed as a message to Israel, particularly over a flashpoint Jerusalem holy site.
