Jordan: Video Cameras to be up 'in Days' at Jerusalem Shrine

Saturday, 19 March 2016 11:31 AM

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — A government spokesman says Jordan will install cameras "within days" at a tense Jerusalem shrine revered by Muslims and Jews.

The surveillance was to have been set up months ago to lower friction that has contributed to ongoing Israeli-Palestinian violence. Disagreement between Jordan and Israel over what the cameras can show apparently contributed to the delays.

Israel wants cameras installed everywhere in the compound, including in two mosques, to document alleged hoarding of stones by Palestinians for clashes with Israeli troops. Jordan, custodian of the shrine, only wants cameras in open areas to show alleged violations by Israeli security forces.

Government spokesman Mohammed Momani told Jordan TV late Friday that Jordan will stick to its plan and that cameras will be restricted to open areas.

Israel had no immediate comment.
