On Sunday, the 25th of February, 2018, Christian leaders of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem closed its doors to protest tax and property bills targeting religious sites. Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian Church leaders said that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is the holiest site in Christianity, will be closed indefinitely due to what they called a "systematic and unprecedented attack against Christians in the Holy Land."
