The Jordanian Government denounced, Saturday, the death of a Jordanian citizen, in occupied Jerusalem, after he “carried out a stabbing attack targeting Israeli police officers.”

Dr. Mohammad Al Momani, Jordan’s Minister of State for Media Affairs, said that his country and its embassy in Tel Aviv, are following the developments closely, and want “a full and a credible investigation into the events the led to his death.”

He said that the Jordanian citizen, Mohammad Abdullah al-Kasji, 57, was killed in occupied East Jerusalem, therefore, Israel, as the country that illegally occupies the city, is responsible for any escalation.

It is worth mentioning that the Jordanian citizen entered the country after obtaining a tourist visa from the Israeli embassy, as part of a tourist group, but left the group later.
