The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates strongly denounced the Friday dawn Israeli attack against Palestinian Muslim worshipers in Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem.

The Ministry said that the invasion into the courtyards of the holy sites, and the violent assault against the worshipers, is another serious Israeli violation of International Law and all related treaties.

It added that the attack is a provocative move aiming at creating more tension and called on Israel to abide by all related agreements, by ending its violations and invasions into the holy sites in occupied Palestine, especially Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Ministry also said that, as the occupying power, Israel must respect the historic and legal statutes, and should stop these violations, instead of acting on creating more conflicts.

On Friday at dawn, the soldiers shot a young Palestinian man and a woman with rubber-coated steel bullets, and assaulted many others with clubs and batons, following dawn prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in Jerusalem.

It relayed news, the soldiers abducted, on Friday at dawn, at least thirteen Palestinians, including one woman and two journalists, from their homes in several parts of occupied East Jerusalem.

In addition, Illegal Israeli colonists, squatting on stolen Palestinian lands, burnt sections of a mosque in Sharafat Palestinian village, southwest of Jerusalem, after infiltrating into the village at dawn.
