Jewish settlers are seen watching the clashes in the center of the West Bank town of Hebron on March 17, 2010. Israel on Wednesday lifted its tight restrictions on Palestinian access to Jerusalem's holiest shrine and called off an extended West Bank closure after days of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces. While there were no reports of new clashes in Jerusalem, sporadic violence broke out Wednesday in the West Bank. Photo by Najeh Hashlamoun
