From there, William headed to the iconic Al-Aqsa Mosque, where he took a tour of the mosque compound accompanied by officials of Jerusalem's Jordan-run Authority for Islamic Endowments.

His personal visit came after the duke visited the Western Wall, and followed the centuries old tradition of placing a written prayer in a crack in the wall.

The dailies said that Mustafa Abu Azzum, 17, succumbed to his wounds he sustained when he was hit with an Israeli artillery shell, east of Rafah city, in the southern besieged Gaza Strip. Abdullah reportedly said that unveiling the plan without coordinating with the Palestinians would be a "catastrophe".

It also reported that Gaza youths have invented flaming balloons which they could fly into Gaza periphery settlements.

Four Arab states have backed the US plan for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, regardless of the position of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, an Israeli newspaper reports. They were protected by a contingent of the Israeli occupation forces.

Seems that when Prince William went to visit with Palestinian and United Nations officials in Ramallah, his vehicle was stoned by Palestinian children.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of global law, with recent announcements of settlement expansion provoking condemnation from the worldwide community.

Al-Amadi, who is in a visit to Gaza, said no deal has been reached so far, adding that negotiations are still ongoing to reach a comprehensive deal to improve the situation in the poverty-stricken territory.

Yet, the UNRWA Staff Union was reported in al-Ayyam calling on the UNRWA administration to reverse its decision to terminate the contracts of many employees.

Israel has defended its use of live fire against the Palestinian protesters saying it was necessary to defend its land from Hamas - Palestine's leading political party which is deemed a terrorist organization by the U.S. and EU. Israeli officials have long expressed frustration with the British royals for not making official visits to the country despite several unofficial and more private visits.

Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Executive Committee Saeb Erekat was reported in al-Hayat al-Jadida reiterating that "Palestine is not for sale" in response to the U.S. decision to freeze financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.

"It's also a source of concern for the PA, which doesn't want to have another country claiming responsibility for East Jerusalem".
