Regional Cooperation Minister Issawi Frej weighs in on events at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, after Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s comments about “freedom of worship” for Jews at the flashpoint holy site, despite a ban on non-Muslim prayer there.

“The slow-moving fracturing of the status quo at the Al-Aqsa compound doesn’t contribute anything besides instability in the regional and coalition,” tweets Frej, a member of the left-wing Meretz party.
