Jordan demands Israel to stop providing cover to Al-Aqsa incursions

Amman, Dec. 16 (Petra) -- The government, on Wednesday, demanded the Israeli occupation authorities to refrain from facilitating and providing security cover for Jewish incursions to the Al-Aqsa Mosque / the Al-Haram Al-Sharif, especially those that took place earlier this week.

Minister of State for Media Affairs, the government's spokesman, Mohammad Al-Momani, expressed Jordan's rejection of the Israeli occupation police allowing extremists to perform Talmudic rituals after storming the Al-Haram al-Sharif; describing such practices as blatant aggression against holy sites and an outright provocation to all Muslims' feelings.

Al-Momani strongly condemned the Israeli police for allowing Jewish extremists to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque, barefooted, according to Talmudic beliefs, noting that this is a serious indication of the continuous escalation against the holy shrine.

He voiced rejection of the blatant interference by the Israeli police in the work of the Hashemite Committee for Restoration of the Islamic Holy Places in Jerusalem and in the repairing of some damages in the Al-Aqsa Mosque; condemning Israeli police attempts this morning to prevent repairing an urgent malfunction in the water network in the mosque.

The minister said the ongoing Israeli violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque constitute a gross breach of the peace agreement signed in 1994 between the two countries, the international law and relevant United Nations and the Security Council's resolutions.

He added that these violations are a clear evidence of the Israeli occupation's non-stop attempts to change the status quo at the Islamic holy sites and other locations in occupied East Jerusalem.

The government spokesman said Jordan, stemming from His Majesty King Abdullah's custodianship of Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, will continue to counter such incursions using all diplomatic and legal tools.
