In recent years, more Jews, mostly Israeli nationalists, have discreetly prayed at the area, which Palestinians decry. Such efforts threaten Jerusalem’s holy sites, say Western governments.

“The Security Council must take its role seriously and stop this,” he said.

UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said Wednesday that Antonio Guterres “urge on all to desist from escalating tensions in and around Jerusalem.”

The UN Security Council has issued multiple resolutions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and favors a two-state solution.
