Members of the Palestinian factions hold banners and national flags during a demonstration to show solidarity with Jerusalem and against the recent visits by Jewish activists to al-Aqsa mosque, in Gaza city November 9, 2014. In recent weeks there have been near-daily clashes between the stone-throwing Palestinians and Israeli riot police in occupied East Jerusalem. Some of the attacks have turned deadly. The unrest was triggered by Muslim fears of Jewish encroachment at the sacred site, a hilltop plateau known to Muslims as Haram as-Sharif, or Noble Sanctuary, and to Jews as the Temple Mount.
