Israel’s housing minister, Uri Ariel, may soon take up residence in one of the most contentious parts of east Jerusalem.

According to Channel 2, Ariel is considering moving to a new residence in Silwan, the predominantly Arab quarter near the Old City which has been the focal point of heightened Israeli-Palestinian tensions in recent days due to the increased Jewish presence there.

The minister has informed the Israel Security Service (Shin Bet) of his possible plans, which would require a security assessment since the agency is responsible for providing bodyguards to senior officials in the Israeli government, Channel 2 reported.
