:: Israel on Tuesday suspended tax measures and other actions that led to the rare closure of the church built at what is seen as the holiest site in Christianity.

The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the suspension in a statement.

Christian leaders who have kept Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre closed since Sunday over the measures have yet to respond to the decision.
