Israel says no plan to allow Jews to pray at Al-Aqsa

Israel Wednesday reassured Jordan that it would not allow Jewish prayer at Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound, after reports of a possible change raised concerns in the Arab world.

"There is no intention of changing the status quo on the Temple Mount," a source in the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, using the Israeli term for the compound which is located in the Old City.

The plaza is often at the center of tensions because it is the third holiest site in Islam but also the most sacred place in Judaism.
