Jordanian Foreign Ministry Summons Israeli Ambassador over Temple Mount 'Violations'

Jordan summons Israeli Ambassador in Amman confirms condemnation of Israeli violations against Aqsa Jordan summons Israeli Ambassador in Amman confirms condemnation of Israeli violations against Aqsa

Jordan on Sunday summoned Israeli Ambassador in Amman Amir Weissbrod in protest of recent Israeli violations against Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif in occupied Jerusalem, calling for an immediate halt to Israel's provocative actions, which constitute a "clear violation" of global law.

Neither Safadi nor the foreign ministry spokesman specified what the alleged Israeli violations were, but the statement said Jordan rejected any closure of the Temple Mount's gates to worshipers.

Jordan, the only Arab country apart from Egypt to have a peace agreement with the Jewish state, supervises Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem.

Jews are allowed to visit the site but not to pray there.

The ministry informed Weissbrod of its utter condemnation of Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan's comments suggesting a shift in Al Aqsa Mosque's status quo to allow Jews to pray at the Muslim holy site.

Responding to the Jordanian statement, Foreign Minister Israel Katz defended Erdan and said Israel was the sovereign over the holy site, though he noted Jordan's role as the Islamic custodian there.

Past year also saw Disney register companies in the United Kingdom which also strongly hinted at a Star Wars Obi-Wan series . The second, which fans will care about a bit more, is that "he will be performing alongside a familiar mechanical co-star".

Jews are allowed to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque, but they can not pray there - a ban condemned by some Israeli nationalists, including members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing coalition.

Safadi warned against the grave consequences of Israeli unilateral steps meant to change the historical and legal status of Jerusalem, according to a Foreign Ministry statement obtained by Xinhua.

In a bid to ease tensions, police initially barred Jews from entering, but Muslim worshippers still suspected they would be allowed in and staged protests that sparked clashes.

The committee criticised the world's silence, mainly in the USA, in light of Israeli procedures of destroying Palestinian homes and neighbourhoods and expelling indigenous residents, as well as violations against Islamic and Christian holy sites, at the top of which is Al Aqsa Mosque, according to Petra.

Talk or even rumors of changes to the status quo arrangement at the holy site are typically met with vociferous protest from the Muslim world, which has accused Israel of attempting to "judaize" the site or expand access for Jewish pilgrims.

Eid al-Adha coincided with the Jewish Tisha B'av holiday, resulting in an increase in visits by Jewish worshippers to the holy site. Following criticism from far-right Israeli politicians, police opened the site to Jews, leading to further clashes.
