For the first time in decades, Israel closed the site sacred to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount on Friday, after three Arab Muslim Israeli citizens opened fire from the holy compound with automatic weapons, killing two police officers before they were shot and killed.
After the prayers, the Palestinians staged a protest against the enhanced security measures, chanting they were ready "to sacrifice ourselves for Al-Aqsa (mosque) with our soul and our blood", as Israeli border guards looked on.
"In the Old City, evening Muslim prayers took place, many local residents prayed in areas outside the Temple Mount", Israel Police reported Tuesday evening.
The Shabak is anxious of an explosion by the protesters and has recommended to PM Netanyahu that the metal detectors be removed.

"We will not break the solidarity of the people", said Jamal Abdallah, a Palestinian who now lives in the U.S. state of Arizona and was planning to visit Al Aqsa, but changed his mind when he was told of the situation.Israel took the highly unusual decision of closing the compound for Friday prayers, triggering anger from Muslims and Jordan, the holy site's custodian.
Arab led riots erupted Tuesday night and Monday morning, following a call from imams and Palestinian leaders for a "Day of Rage", in response to the new security measures at the Temple Mount. "They are calculating to spark some level of violence because that's when Israel works best", Diana Buttu, a former advisor to Abbas said.
The temporary closure to investigate the incident and the decision to install metal detectors (magnetometers) and security cameras near the Lion's Gate provided fertile ground to incite against Israel.
Clashes around the compound have been ongoing following the introduction of metal detectors along the perimeter of the holy site Sunday. Israel subsequently annexed East Jerusalem, claiming it part of its "eternal and indivisible" capital, in a move never recognized internationally.
Zeev Elkin, the Cabinet minister responsible for issues connected with Jerusalem, told the radio station the attack was possible because of Israel's desire to allow freedom of worship to Muslims and others at the site.
The attack and new security measures have increased Israeli-Palestinian tensions.
