Times of Israel: "Under Palestinian homes, US envoys hammer open an ancient East Jerusalem
road" (June 30, 2019)
Several dozen activists from the Peace Now settlement watchdog protested outside the East Jerusalem
event. The left-wing NGO has branded the Pilgrimage Road "the controversy tunnel," adding that it
had "caused the evacuation of Palestinian homes in the neighborhood and increased tensions between
Palestinian residents and Jewish settlers, who have been acting more intensively than ever in
recent years to Judaize the neighborhood, as part of an effort to sabotage the two-state solution."
