Report: Construction of footbridge to Temple Mount exacerbated geopolitical tensions - Arab-Israeli Conflict - Jerusalem Post

Israeli attempts last summer to construct a ramp to the Temple Mount resulted in heightened geopolitical tensions amid allegations of changes to the contested holy site’s status quo, according to a report published Thursday.The findings were produced by Emek Shaveh, an organization of archeologists and community activists, who study the role of archeology in the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.While the report, entitled “Archeology in the Political Struggle Over the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif,” delineates significant changes on the Temple Mount and its surroundings since 1967, it focuses on the political fallout engendered by the government’s since-rescinded attempt to build the ramp to supplant the Mugrabi Bridge.According to the report, there were “unprecedented developments in the activities of the Israeli authorities around the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif,” last summer involving the controversial entrance.
