Israeli security forces escort Jewish worshipers coming from the Western Wall, Judaism's holiest site, as they cross al-Wad street in the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, on September 15, 2015Al-Wad Street used to be one of the busiest within the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City, but today the narrow alley is almost empty except for Israeli soldiers.

Set between the walls of the Old City inside annexed east Jerusalem, Al-Wad may only be several metres (yards) wide.
