A Palestinian terrorist stabbed two Israelis Friday morning, one of whom was severely injured.

More than 200,000 Muslims took part in the final Friday prayers of Ramadan at Al-Aqsa mosque compound in the Old City of annexed east Jerusalem, as Israel heightened security following a Palestinian stabbing attack.

The OIC said it considered the decision by some countries to relocate their embassies to Jerusalem to be a grave violation of worldwide law, and undermining the Middle East peace process.

"Al-Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem, and Iran says the day is an occasion to express support for the Palestinians", adds the AP. Ghaith's body was brought to a Bethlehem hospital, where his distraught family identified the body.

'He was going to fulfil his religious duty, he was going to worship, ' Ghaith said. "They killed him. with a bullet to his heart, like a game, and 16 years I've been raising him".

"Police units that responded at the scene saw the attacker with a knife".

A a 50-year-old Israeli was in critical condition, while the second 18-year-old victim remains in moderate condition. The suspect, police added, was shot by security forces while running through the Old City's Muslim quarter.

Across the Mideast rallies and demonstrations were taking place Friday to mark Quds, or Jerusalem Day, an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan.

The U.S. delegation is on a trip to several capitals in the region this week, seeking support for the Middle East peace plan, or Deal of the Century, that the U.S. plans to roll out soon. The details of the proposal remain unknown. Israeli police said the area would be heavily patrolled to keep the parade from erupting into violence, as has happened in the past.

Since March of past year, Gazans have held weekly rallies along the buffer zone to demand the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

For Muslims, Al Aqsa represents the world's third holiest site after Mecca and Medina.

But Saudi King Salman told leaders of the OIC countries gathered at the summit: "The Palestinian cause is the cornerstone of the works of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and is the focus of our attention until the brotherly Palestinian people get all their legitimate rights".

Speaking to the Reuters news agency on Friday, a senior Palestinian official said that "the plan doesn't give justice to the Palestinians".
