NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: In the Middle East, more violence as Israeli troops clash with Palestinian civilians for the eighth straight day. Mounting injuries are being reported on both sides.
CNN's Jerusalem bureau chief Mike Hanna has more, now, on the hostilities.
MIKE HANNA, CNN JERUSALEM BUREAU CHIEF (voice-over): The sound of gunfire again reverberates through the old city. The Palestinians, armed with stones, confronting the Israeli security forces.
An Israeli police station to the north of the old city comes under attack. A number of police officers are injured and the station is set alight. Large numbers of injured, too, among the Palestinians.
Over the past week, some 70 people have been killed. Nearly all either Palestinians or Arab Israelis. Earlier, at the weekly prayers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the old city, Islamic clerics had called for restraint; and afterwards Palestinian security officers were seen to be attempting to control the crowds.
Some stones were thrown at the Western Wall of what Jews call the Temple Mount, but the situation was kept under control until Palestinians leaving the Al-Aqsa compound came up against the Israeli forces.
(on camera): Evident, once again, the Palestinian anger and armed Israeli response; and hopes that there could be a cessation of hostilities dissipating along with the smoke billowing over the walls of the old city.
Mike Hanna, CNN, Jerusalem.
