Washington: We are deeply concerned about the violence in Jerusalem

The State Department said the United States is "deeply concerned about the violence in Jerusalem" on Friday.


In a statement, the Foreign Ministry added that it called on "all parties to exercise restraint, avoid provocative actions and rhetoric, and preserve the current historical situation in the Haram al-Sharif."


The ministry urged "Palestinian and Israeli officials to work cooperatively to reduce tensions and ensure everyone's safety," noting that it "closely follows developments and will remain in close contact with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials to seek to de-escalate tensions."
