Police fired tear gas in Jerusalem's Old City Thursday to break up a march by about 150 Palestinians to the Temple Mount, where 19 Arabs were killed by police gunfire earlier this week.

"World, listen to us. We are people who will never submit," the marchers chanted before being blocked from entering the Mount by riot police armed with submachine guns.Meanwhile, about 70 other Palestinians, many of them women dressed in black, staged a sit-down strike at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to protest the killings.

They were the latest in a series of demonstrations that have followed the clash Monday on the Mount, the third holiest site in Islam.

Arab hospitals in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip said at least 14 Palestinians were shot and wounded by soldiers in scattered clashes on Wednesday.

More than a million Palestinians remained under army curfews in the occupied territories, confined to their homes under army orders.
