Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday sent an "urgent letter" to the US Administration concerning the situation in east Jerusalem.

In his letter, Abbas urged the US Administration to intervene quickly to "stop Israeli escalation in east Jerusalem, especially raids by settlers and extremists into the Aqsa Mosque," according to a statement released by the PA president's office in Ramallah.

Abbas warned that Israel's measures in the city would lead to a "wider explosion" that would be impossible to control.

Abbas also held the Israeli government responsible for the "dangerous escalation" and claimed that it was seeking to divide prayer times inside the Temple Mount between Muslims and Jews.
