Jordan condemns Israeli assaults against Al-Aqsa Mosque

Amman Jordan on Sunday condemned the ongoing Israeli assaults on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the recurrent raids by extremists and settlers, done under the protection of Israel’s occupation soldiers.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Sufian Qudah reiterated that Israel, as an occupying power, must abide by its obligations under international law and respect the historical and legal status quo of Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as the worshippers’ rights and sentiments, especially during Ramadan, the holy month of fasting.

The spokesperson called on the occupation authorities to immediately halt provocative actions, saying that Israel bears full responsibility for the safety of the Mosque and the worshippers. He also called on the international community to abide by international law and hold its responsibilities in this regard.

Qudah said that the ministry has lodged a protest to the Israeli government, through diplomatic channels that carried Jordan’s condemnation of the provocative Israeli actions against the holy places, and demanded their immediate cessation.
