The Area That Was Closed by Israel in the Old City

Israel blocked access on Thursday to an area sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims.

Under heavy pressure and the threat of new Israeli-Palestinian strife, Israel later announced that it would reopen the site Friday. OCT. 30, 2014 RELATED ARTICLE
