Later on, a young man was shot to death by Israeli soldiers after an alleged stabbing attempt south of Bethlehem near the Gush Etzion settlement block.
However, local witnesses said that Israeli soldiers fired at 24-year-old Abdullah Taqatqa when he was 20 metres from them.
Protests also broke out along the Gaza Strip's border, resulting in the killing of 16-year-old Abdelrahman Abu Humeisa by the Israeli army.
Seven other Palestinians were wounded by live fire in east Jabaliya, north of the strip and east of the Bureij area, in the middle.
In Ramallah, clashes broke out after prayers near the Qalandiya checkpoint, one of the main barriers that separates the West Bank from Jerusalem.
"We saw Israeli security forces use concussion grenades as well as a lot of tear gas," Al Jazeera’s Scott Heidler said, reporting from Qalandiya. He said live rounds had also been used.
Tensions remain high in East Jerusalem, with a fortified Israeli military and security presence.
In an act of civil disobedience, Palestinians have held prayers day and night outside al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the past two weeks in protest at Israel's increased surveillance measures and obstacles to free movement at the entrances and gates.
On Thursday, Palestinians made their way inside the compound for the first time in 13 days after the Israeli government removed newly installed security cameras and metal detectors.
The scenes of jubilation, with many describing the day as a victory for the Palestinians, quickly soured after Israeli forces fired stun grenades and tear gas inside the compound at the Palestinians, wounding more than 100.
The Israeli measures were installed after an attack carried out by three Palestinian citizens of Israel on July 14, who shot and killed two Israeli policemen.
The Palestinians were then chased inside the compound and shot to death.
Israeli authorities closed the compound for two days, angering Palestinians, who feared that a change in the status quo of the holy site would see it going under the control of Israelis.
In more than 12 days of protests, Israeli forces wounded more than 1,000 Palestinians during clashes, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.
Three Palestinians were killed last Friday during Day of Rage protests across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
Later that night, a Palestinian assailant hopped over the fence of Halamish, a Jewish-only settlement in the West Bank, and killed three Israelis in their home.
The compound, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount, has been the site of much contention in recent years.
'It is our social place'
Palestinians view al-Aqsa Mosque compound as more than just a religious site, Ahmad Buderi, a Jerusalem affairs commentator, said.
"It is a place where we meet, a place where we bury our dead people, a place where we get married," he told Al Jazeera. "It is our social place. It is where we play football in the afternoons."
Palestinians knew that they would bear the responsibility of protecting the mosque, Buderi said, adding that the Arab and Islamic world can do nothing.
"The Palestinians joined together, and forgot about their political and social differences, and that's how we won," he said.
