UN Warns Jerusalem Clashes Could Ignite Mideast Violence


Clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinian Arab terrorists at a Jerusalem’s Temple Mount could trigger violence elsewhere in the Middle East, a UN envoy warned Tuesday, according to AFP.

UN coordinator Nickolay Mladenov delivered the warning to the Security Council on the third straight day of violence at Temple Mount.

“As the Middle East faces a vicious tide of terror and extremism, such serious provocations have the potential to ignite violence well beyond the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem,” Mladenov said.
