A Jewish visitor walks protected by Israeli security forces near Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock mosque in the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, the third holiest site in Islam but also the most sacred place in Judaism, on October 27, 2014. Non-Muslim visits to the compound in the Old City of Jerusalem are permitted and regulated by police, but Jews are not allowed to pray there for fear it could trigger major disturbances, nor do they enter the mosques there. Visits by religious nationalist Israelis tend to trigger clashes between stonethrowing youths and Israeli police, as well as complaints from Jordan which overseas Muslim heritage sites in Jerusalem.
