Today, Thursday, the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Affairs condemned the continued Israeli violations in Al-Aqsa Mosque, the latest of which was the storming of the mosque’s courtyards by jews settlers under the protection of the Israeli police.
The ministry’s spokesman, Ambassador Haitham Abu al-Ful, confirmed, according to the Jordan News Agency, that the extremists’ behavior represents a violation of the historical and legal status quo, and international law, and is an unacceptable practice that contradicts Israel’s obligations as an occupying power in East Jerusalem under international law.
Dozens of Jewish settlers, supported by the Israeli occupation forces, stormed yesterday, Wednesday the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Eyewitnesses said that dozens of settlers stormed Al-Aqsa, and carried out provocative tours in its courtyards and performed Talmudic rituals.
Earlier, Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the violations committed by Israeli extremists protected by the Israeli forces against Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Ahmed Hafez, the official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, affirmed Egypt’s rejection of these violations, stressing that Egypt has always warned against harming Al-Aqsa Mosque.
