AMMAN/JERUSALEM – An idea to install cameras throughout Jerusalem to ease rising tension between Palestinians and Israelis has been accepted by both sides through a joint effort by US and Jordan.

Speaking in Amman after meeting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan’s King Abdullah, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Israel had given assurances it had no intention of changing the status quo of al-Aqsa – the third holiest site in Islam.

He praised the proposal by the Jordanian king, the custodian of the al-Aqsa compound in Jerusalem’s walled Old City, for 24-hour video surveillance at the site and said that Netanyahu has agreed to “an excellent suggestion.”
