Kerry to hold talks with Israeli, Palestinian leaders

AFP, JERUSALEM

AFP, JERUSALEM: US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives in Jerusalem Tuesday for talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders in a bid to ease weeks of bloodshed, but hopes for a breakthrough are faint a day after four people were killed.
Kerry will hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin while in Jerusalem, then meet separately with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in Ramallah.
His visit comes after nearly two months of violence that has left 92 Palestinians dead, including one Arab Israeli, as well as 17 Israelis, an American and an Eritrean, and sparked fears of a new Palestinian uprising.
More than half of the Palestinians killed have been alleged attackers, while others were shot during demonstrations and clashes with Israeli security forces, including along the Gaza border.
The stabbings, shootings and car rammings have overwhelmingly been carried out by so-called "lone wolf" attackers, making it harder for Israel to predict where and when the next assault will come.Three Palestinians -- including a teenage girl -- and an Israeli soldier died on Monday in the latest violence.
Palestinians blame changes to the status quo at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound -- Islam's third most-holy site but known to Jews as Temple Mount -- as the spark for the bloodshed. Israel has repeatedly denied it is seeking to change the current rules, under which Jews and Christians can visit but only Muslims can pray at the site.
