Israeli police on Monday limited Muslim access to Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound, fearing new violence after clashes at the weekend, a spokesman said.
As part of the security measures, male residents of Jerusalem would face age restrictions, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
"For men, only those aged 50 and over are allowed to pray, and women of all ages," he told AFP.
"It's a precaution that has been taken after a security assessment of the possibility of disturbances."
