Jordan said on Sunday it will set up security cameras around Jerusalem's flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound in the coming days to monitor any Israeli "violations".

In October, US Secretary of State John Kerry met Jordan's King Hussein in Amman and endorsed a plan to install cameras at the site in a bid to calm repeated disturbances and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed.

But the Jordanian-run trust or "Waqf" that administers the site then complained that Israeli police had blocked them from installing the cameras.
