President Donald Trump's special representative for international negotiations will travel to Amman from Israel for talks over a deepening crisis on the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif, a senior administration official said on Monday.

The president's adviser, Jason Greenblatt, hopes to diffuse tensions over new Israeli security measures implemented after a shooting attack shook the holy plateau earlier this month. Greenblatt has visited the region several times since Trump took office in an effort to reboot peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

“Jason Greenblatt arrived in Israel Monday afternoon," the official stated. "Following meetings with Ambassador David Friedman and Prime Minister Netanyahu, Mr. Greenblatt is traveling to Amman, Jordan for additional discussions."

Jordan, which manages the Temple Mount and Al Aksa Mosque but not its security, has called on Israel to remove new metal detectors introduced at the site, which have prompted mass protests across the region.
