Jordanian experts reportedly fixed a bulge in a retaining wall of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. Israel said the bulge was caused by renovation work conducted by the Wakf, the Islamic trust that oversees the mount compound. Israeli experts said the bulge could have caused the wall to collapse, but the Jordanians denied that the defect was so serious.
