Jordan lashes out at Israeli provocation in Al-Aqsa Mosque

The government on Sunday strongly condemned the continuous Israeli violations and provocations against Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, especially the provocative break-ins by crowds of extremists into the compound's yards under the protection of the occupation forces.

Jewish zealots this morning broke into the holy compound in occupied Jerusalem's Old City in large numbers, began singing and raised Israeli flags, touching off clashes with Muslim worshippers and the Mosque guard.

Jordan's State Minister for Media Affairs and official government spokesman, Mohammed Momani, said that the Jordanian embassy in Tel Aviv had lodged a protest with the Israeli foreign ministry, expressing the kingdom's strong condemnation of "such irresponsible behavior" and demanding an immediate halt to these actions.

"We condemn and reject such practices".


Jewish visitors were removed from the site for praying and bowing in contravention of regulations that ban all non-Muslims from praying in the grounds of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. "Israel is violating all global laws and norms by providing protection to such violations and provocations", said Momani.

The minister stressed on the need to respect the status quo and the legal and historic status of Jerusalem.

The Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state but Israel has declared the whole of the city as its undivided capital.

"We are now at a unsafe stage of Israeli plans to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque and build their alleged temple", he said, going on to call on the Arab countries "to shoulder their responsibilities to the holy sites".
