Israel says it will reopen a key holy site in Jerusalem today, after closing it due to unrest in the city.

Earlier, a spokesman for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas described the closure of the disputed site as a "declaration of war".

The Haram al-Sharif or Temple Mount, one of Islam and Judaism's holiest sites, was closed yesterday, following the shooting of a Jewish activist.

The move came, amid increased tension in Jerusalem following several attacks.

Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennet told the BBC that Israel would restore access to the site today.
