Lapid tells France: Israel committed to maintaining status quo on Temple Mount

Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, who has been acting as a de facto shadow foreign minister since taking his party into the opposition earlier this year, told France's top diplomat on Friday that Israel was committed to maintaining the status quo on Temple Mount and the other holy sites in Jerusalem.
