BYU Jerusalem Center, students safe after bombs are aimed at Jerusalem for first time in 40 years
"The streets of Jerusalem seem relatively normal. Some Palestinians in East Jerusalem have been particularly loud tonight with their celebrations and fireworks but Jews were at the West Wall welcoming in the Shabbat," Moulton said in his post. "We here at the (Jerusalem Center) have handled the situation in stride — going on with our plans and held our Jerusalem Center Prom."
East Jerusalem is off limits to students because of tensions with the Gaza conflict, but the rest of Jerusalem "seems as quiet and peaceful as ever," the update said.
