The United States expressed “deep concern” in connection with Friday's riots on the Temple Mount, during which hundreds of Palestinians clashed with Israeli police. The Times of Israel reports.
“We call on all parties to exercise restraint, avoid provocative actions and rhetoric, and maintain the historic status quo on the Temple Mount. We call on Palestinian and Israeli officials to work together, to reduce tensions and ensure the safety of all. The State Department is closely monitoring developments and will continue to maintain close contact with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials to try to reduce tensions,” the US State Department said in a statement.
