CONTENTS Early History of Jerusalem The Ottoman Empire The Temple Mount Dome of the Rock Western Wall (Wailing Wall) Church of the Holy Sepulchre Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Over Jerusalem Modern-Day Jerusalem Sources Jerusalem is a city located in modern-day Israel and is considered by many to be one of the holiest places in the world. Jerusalem is a site of major significance for the three largest monotheistic religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity, and both Israel and Palestine have claimed Jerusalem as a capital city. Because of these strong, age-old associations, bloody conflicts to control the city and sites within it have been waged for thousands of years. Early History of Jerusalem Scholars believe the first human settlements in Jerusalem took place during the Early Bronze Age—somewhere around 3500 B.C.

Now that day was a Sabbath.” John 5: 1-9 NRSV The Gospel of John records a miraculous healing that took place at the Pools of Bethesda.

There is no peace in South East despite our departure -Miyetti Allah

Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore spokesman Saleh Alhassan Fulani herdsmen under the aegis of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore say despite their exit from the South-East and the implementation of the anti-open grazing law, the region has continued to witness insecurity. The spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan, stated this during a chat with PUNCH Live on Tuesday, adding that the development was evidence that Fulani herders were never the problem. He said that there was no more open grazing in most parts of the South-East but only cattle trading, adding that the cows being sold in the South-East mostly belong to Igbo traders. Alhassan stated, “That nonsense you see in the South-East is a manifestation of frustration… They will continue burning their cities, killing themselves. “Now that the herders are not there, they are still killing themselves. Sometimes they wear Fulani attires to continue to commit heinous crimes. “Now that the herders are not there, are they having peace in the E
