US Vice President Mike Pence requested to hold a press conference at the Western Wall immediately upon his landing in Israel but was refused by the Rabbi responsible for the site, Channel 10 news reports.

Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, who is the current Rabbi of the Western Wall and the holy sites, has been serving in that role since 2000.

He cited his concern that such an event, if approved, would lead to violent escalations in Jerusalem between Arabs and Jews.
