Jordan: continuous Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque is a clear violation of the peace agreement

PNN/Bethlehem

On Wednesday this week, a spokesman of the Jordanian government called on the Israeli government to stop securing settler raids on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, considering this a “flagrant violation” of the mutual peace agreement, the Anadolu Agency reported.

According to the Middle East Monitor, in a statement, the Jordanian Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications and Government Spokesman Mohammad Al-Momani also condemned the Israeli permission for “the extremist Jews who perform Talmudic rituals when they storm Al-Aqsa Mosque,” calling this a “profanation of the Islamic sites and provocation of Muslims’ feelings.”

“Continuous Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque is a clear violation of the peace agreement signed in 1994 between the two countries,” he said, noting that this is also a violation of the international law, the UN and the UNSC resolutions.

Based on the peace agreement signed in 1994, Jordan maintains the right to oversee the holy sites in the city of Jerusalem.
