The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Affairs condemned the remarks of the Minister of Internal Security of the Israeli occupation government Gilad Erdan regarding the situation in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The spokesman for the ministry, Ambassador Sufian Al-Qudah, expressed the kingdom's absolute rejection of such statements, warning against any attempt to prejudice the historical and legal status quo and the serious consequences thereof, Petra news agency reported Tuesday.
Sufyan al-Qudah reminded Israel, as an occupying power under international law and international humanitarian law, that it must honor its obligations and fully respect the status quo.
The judges called on the Israeli authorities to immediately stop all attempts to change the status quo in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Spokesman explained that the ministry sent an official note through diplomatic channels to protest and object to the statements of the Israeli minister.
Minister Erdan had called for a change in the status quo in Jerusalem, so that Jews could pray at the Temple Mount.
