Prime Minister Netanyahu is trying to calm the waters of the crisis this week as a result of the cancellation of the Kotel Plan.

Within this context, his representatives are assessing how to accelerate improvements of the southern Kotel area known as "Israel's Area."

Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman and Attorney Ronen Peretz arrived today to the southern Kotel complex at Robinson's Arch to assess ways of upgrading it.

On Tuesday, Braverman had spoken about the Government's decision regarding the Western Wall deal, GPO reported.

"It is important to Prime Minister Netanyahu that every Jew is able to pray at the Western Wall," Braverman said. "Therefore, alongside yesterday's decision he issued three directives that have gone unnoticed."

"First, the Prime Minister instructed that work to prepare the southern plaza be expedited so that Jews from all streams may pray at the Western Wall.

"Second, that Jews from all streams be able to continue praying there – as they are able to do today.

"Third, the Prime Minister instructed Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud) and me to continue dialogue with the various parties in order to try and reach a solution.

"I recommend that those trying to exploit this issue stick with precise facts."
