Monday, Jordan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the escalating and continuous violations committed by Israeli Occupation extremists by storming the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque / Al-Haram Al-Sharif, and the fact that they are allowed to carry out provocative practices that violate its sanctity, under the intense protection of the police of the Israeli Occupation.
The official spokesperson for the ministry, Ambassador Haitham Abu al-Ful, said that the escalating violations, and the accompanying provocative practices in the Holy Mosque, and in the Islamic cemeteries surrounding it, are a violation of the historical and legal status quo, and of international law.
He stressed that the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque / Al-Haram Al-Sharif, with its entire area of 144 dunums, is a place of worship exclusively for Muslims, and the visit for non-Muslims must be organized by Jerusalem Islamic Waqf which is affiliated with the Jordanian Ministry of Awqaf Islamic Affairs and Holy Places as it is the legal authority with exclusive jurisdiction to manage all the affairs of the mosque and to regulate entry to it.
Abu Al-Ful called on Israeli Occupation, as the occupying power, to immediately cease all practices and violations against the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to respect its sanctity, stressing the need to stop all measures aimed at changing the existing historical and legal status quo.
