Jordan condemned on Monday, July 22, 2019, Israeli demolition of several Palestinian residential buildings in Sur Baher, an East Jerusalem neighborhood, stressing that such move is a flagrant violation of international law and signed agreements.

Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Sufian Qudah, demanded Israel to immediately halt such practices which it stressed would increase tension, deepen despair, and have a fundamental impact on two-state solution.

Qudah reiterated Jordan's rejection of Israel's settlement policies, including the building and expansion of settlements in occupied Palestinian territories and its land confiscation policy; among other moves aimed at the forced displacement of Palestinians from their land.
