Court to Hear Bid to Block Settler Control of Western Wall Section

The prosecution argues that transferring control of the site to a subcontractor - the settler organization Elad - will limit the government’s freedom to act in the holy site.

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court is to hold a hearing on Tuesday on the attorney general’s request to cancel an agreement for the settler organization Elad-the City of David Foundation to manage the entire southern section of the Western Wall.
