We are concerned by recent tensions and violence at the Haram al Sharif/Temple Mount, and urge all parties to avoid provocation and work to uphold the status quo. In our meetings with the Israeli authorities we regularly raise the need to respect the status quo on the holy sites in Jerusalem. The Minister for the Middle East expressed the Government's concern at recent escalations at the Haram al Sharif/Temple Mount with Israel's Ambassador to London on 11 June.
