Jerusalem - The Palestinian Health Ministry says three Palestinians have died so far in the day's confrontations with Israeli forces over security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. 

The clashes are still underway.

The ministry did not elaborate on the identity of the latest fatality or the circumstances of the death. Hospital officials said earlier that two Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli forces on Friday.

Israeli police say they are investigating.

The clashes erupted in Jerusalem and the West Bank after Israel set up metal detectors at entrances to a sensitive shrine, holy to both Jews and Muslims, after a deadly attack there killed two police officers.

Palestinians view the measure as Israel expanding control over the site. Israel strongly denies the allegation, insisting it is to prevent further attacks.
