Watch: Taking Back King David's Tomb With Prayer

Following the Christian Mass services at the David's Tomb Compound on Sunday, and in the very room of King David's Tomb marker on Monday, Jews took back the holy site later on Monday in a protest prayer at the "Room of the Last Supper," preventing further breaches of the status quo.

Israeli officials have continuously denied a transfer of the holy site to the Vatican. The Minister of Public Security denied a change in status quo, and similarly the Chief Sephardic Rabbi and Israel's Ambassador to the Vatican have denied any deal. However, Arutz Sheva received videos, pictures and testimony verifying that the Tomb Compound has been the site of Mass services on a regular basis since Pope Francis's visit two weeks ago.
