Jaradat underlined the importance of visits by Arab officials “to see developments in the occupied Palestinian lands and to support Palestinian steadfastness”.

The holy city remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem -- currently occupied by Israel -- might one day serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
