I can't make sense of the signature, but the motif is the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is the rightmost word, insecurely written.

It looks to me as being from the middle or second half of the 20th century. The artist could be from anywhere, although I would have liked the name to be French.

Regards,
Vietato

Etching not engraving...
Israeli artist Meir Gur-Arie (1891-1951). Born in Russia, Gur-Arie studied in Lodz before moving to Israel and studying at the Bezalel Academy in 1909 (one of the Bezalel Academy's earliest students) and etching with Herman Struck. He later taught at the Bezalel Academy and one of the founders of the Workshop for Industrial Design as well as the Union for Hebrew Art.
