According to Alray, Jordan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, on Tuesday, condemned the ongoing Israeli violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque/ Al-Haram Al-Sharif.
One of the most recent violations was by a former Knesset member, performing Talmudic rituals at the entrance of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, accompanied by a group of extremists and then storming the Al-Aqsa (Al-Haram Al-Sharif) under the protection of Israeli police.
The ministry’s spokesperson, Dhaif Allah Al Fayez said Israel’s actions are rejected and constitute a provocation to Muslims around the world, and a violation of Israel’s obligations as the occupying Power in accordance with the international law.
Al Fayez warned of the continuation of these violations, and called for an end to the provocations, and called for Israel to respect the historical and legal status quo, stressing that the Al-Aqsa Mosque, with a full area of 144 dunams, is a place of worship for Muslims only.
