Jordan calls on envoy Amir Weissbrod over ‘Israeli violations’ at Jerusalem Al Aqsa Mosque

Amman, August 19: Jordan called Israel’s representative on Sunday in a challenge over “violations” at Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al Aqsa Mosque, according to the foreign ministry.

It called ambassador Amir Weissbrod to voice its “condemnation and rejection of Israeli violations”  at the exceptionally delicate site, where Israeli security powers conflicted with Palestinian admirers a week ago, according to Dawn news reports.

Jordan, the main Arab nation separated from Egypt to have a harmony concurrence with the Jewish state, oversees some holy destinations in Jerusalem.

Its political protest came days after Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan apparently told a radio station the nation should progress in the direction of Jews being permitted to implore at the holy site.

Be that as it may, he included the change should come through“political agreements and not by force,”  as per Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Jews are permitted to visit yet can’t implore there — a boycott denounced by certain patriots including individuals from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s conservative alliance.

Jordan’s foreign ministry has expressed “the kingdom’s strong condemnation” on Erdan’s comments, demanding “an immediate stop to Israel’s violations and all its attempts to change the historic and legal status quo” at the holy site.

Palestinian worshippers and Israeli police clashed at the holy compound on August 11 as Muslims across the globe marked the Eidul Azha holiday.
