Jerusalem, May 11, 2021
His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem and the heads of other churches represented in the Holy Land issued a statement on Sunday condemning the recent violence in Jerusalem.
The violence poses a threat to all worshipers, and to Palestinians, “who are subject to eviction,” the statement reads. The current situation threatens to further destabilize “the already fragile reality in and around Jerusalem.”
Unfortunately, violence has continued in the Holy City since the ecclesiastical statement was issued, largely focused in and around the Temple Mount, leaving hundreds injured.
