Tourists walk around the tomb in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem’s Old City, June 13, 2019. Following the successful cooperation on the 2016 restoration of the Edicule in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the leaders of the Greek Orthodox, Catholics and Armenian Orthodox, who serve as guardians of the holy site, have signed an agreement to continue with restorations, this time on the pavement and foundations around the tomb.
