Jordan condemns ongoing Israeli violations against Aqsa

Days of Palestine -

Jordan's Foreign Ministry on Sunday strongly denounced the ongoing Israeli violations against al-Aqsa Mosque and the restrictions on worshipers and Awqaf personnel.

The ministry's spokesperson Sufyan Qudah said Israel, as an occupying authority, must abide by its obligations in accordance with international law and respect the historical and legal status of al-Aqsa Mosque and the feelings of Muslims, especially during the last 10 days of the holy month of Ramadan.

Qudah called on the Israeli authorities to immediately halt their provocative practices, and held them responsible for the safety of the holy site and the worshippers.

Earlier on Sunday, the Israeli occupation police arrested three Palestinian worshipers inside al-Aqsa Mosque's compound after violently beating them, while dozens of Jewish settlers broke into the site and roamed its courtyards freely under police guard.
