OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Western Wall Heritage Foundation has gotten permission from the Jerusalem Building and Planning Committee to build a bridge on the Maghariba Gate of the Aqsa Mosque leading to the so-called Wailing Wall from the mosque’s plaza.

According to Israeli Channel Two, the plan had previously been postponed for fear of international criticism and an outburst of protests.

Channel Two quoted Israeli Jerusalem councilman as saying that Maghariba bridge is the last remainder of Jewish sovereignty on the Aqsa Mosque, named by Jews as the Temple Mount. He said without it Jews would not have access to most of the holy of sites in the area, adding that it is important to start building in the near future.
