Jordanian team to fix eastern Mount wall (Jerusalem Post)
By ETGAR LEFKOVITS
A team of Jordanian engineers which has been repairing the bulge on the southern wall of Jerusalem's Temple Mount will be in charge of repair work on hundreds of small holes uncovered in the adjacent eastern wall, a senior Jordanian official said Thursday.
A joint Egyptian-Jordanian report on the stability of the eastern wall issued this week tells of hundreds of small cavities all over the eastern wall, the head of the Jordanian team, Dr. Raief Najim, told The Jerusalem Post in a telephone interview from Amman.
The report cites the natural flow of rainwater over the years � not a winter earthquake in the region � as the cause of the damage, which Najim said is particularly serious in two areas of the eastern wall.
