The wooden bridge, right, connecting the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray, to the Al Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City, Tuesday, July 20, 2021. Experts say the rickety bridge that allows access to the Holy Land’s most sensitive religious site is at imminent risk of collapse. But the shrine’s delicate position at the epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict prevents it from being repaired — raising fears of another disaster just months after 45 people were killed in a stampede at an ultra-Orthodox Jewish shrine where organizers had also ignored years of safety warnings.
