Christians in Jerusalem are standing to protect Masjid Al Aqsa

The leaders of all major Christian denominations in Jerusalem have released a joint statement condemning the Israeli government restrictions on Muslims entering Masjid al-Aqsa. In it, they called for a return to and maintenance of the historical “Status Quo”, in which the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is the custodian governing the al-Aqsa compound.
It comes amid growing tensions between Muslims protesters who continue to face restrictions on entering the mosque. With a rising death toll and collapsed negotiations, the conflict has no clear resolution in sight.
