Israeli researchers have discovered rare ruins in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City, dating back 2,800 years.

The find has been made 100 metres west of the Western Wall, the holiest site for Jews, and the religious compound known to Jews as Temple Mount and to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif, where the Al-Aqsa mosque is located.

Israel said that the dig is aimed at salvaging artefacts before a planned construction of a walkway leading up to the Muslim complex.
