Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Can ‘status-quo’ of Jerusalem’s Old City be preserved? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

Some took part in an incursion in the Al Aqsa Mosque Compound, raised the Israeli flag, and attempted to pray, which is restricted to Muslims.
Such incursions have become increasingly common.
So why is the issue so contentious?
