Israeli government represented by Ministry of Foreign Affairs seeks to transfer the sovereignty over the Maqam of the Prophet Dawud from occupied Jerusalem to the Vatican, during the Pope’s visit to the holy land in the end of May, according to a Jewish organization.According to Al Ray, so-called ‘Headquarter to Save Tomb of Dawud’ asserted that Netanyahu’s government will take the decision secretly but, now,’conflict will arise to the surface since Jews will not give up easily their control over the site for the sake of Christians.’

Jerusalem figures warned of violating the sanctity of the Maqam of Dawud, which is considered a pure Islamic Waqf, as well as a further Israeli attempt to create turbulence between Muslims and Christians.
