Jordan said on Thursday it sent Israel a memo via diplomatic channels, urging Israel to respect the sanctity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and stop all violations there.
Jordanian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Deifallah Al-Fayez denounced the continued Israeli “violations” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the most recent of which was Israel’s allowing hundreds of Jewish extremists to storm the mosque on Thursday.
“What occurred today is an irresponsible and rejected act that provokes the feelings of all the Muslims,” Al-Fayez said in a statement.
The official emphasized that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a place of worship for Muslims, adding that the Jerusalem Awqaf Department, which is affiliated to Jordan, is the only institution for administering the affairs of the mosque.
He also called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility by ending the Israeli “violations” of the status quo at the mosque.
