Jordanian spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sufian al-Qudah said that the ministry is following closely on the unilateral, rejected and condemned actions of Israel in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa mosque / Haram al-Sharif, including the so-called Judaizational project "Beit HaLibah" near the Buraq wall.
The ministry's spokesperson Sufian Qudah, said the foreign ministry has worked during the last few years in coordination with the Palestinians to issue several United Nations/UNESCO resolutions that condemned the establishment of this project and other and illegal projects and excavations carried out by the Israeli occupation authorities in the surrounding area of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Resolutions issued over the past four years called on UNESCO's Executive Council and the World Heritage Committee, Israel, as the occupying Power, to abandon this project in line with Israel's obligations under the UNESCO Conventions and its various resolutions, Qudah added.
He stressed that Israel, as an occupying Power, had to comply with its obligations under international law, which regarded East Jerusalem as an occupied territory since 1967, to which the provisions of international law and humanitarian law applied.
He held Israel fully responsible for the consequences of such provocative measures and for the safety of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and called for their immediate cessation.
