AMMAN — Jordan on Tuesday condemned the deployment of Israeli occupation troops and security forces inside Al Aqsa Mosque Complex.

Government Spokesperson Mohammad Momani warned against the illegal Israeli measures, saying that allowing Jewish extremists to enter Islam’s third holiest site under the protection of occupation forces would ignite religious extremism in the region.

Momani called on the international community to push for an end to provocative Israeli measures in Jerusalem.

Earlier in the day, Jordan’s Ambassador in Tel Aviv Walid Obeidat officially informed the Israeli foreign ministry of the Kingdom’s condemnation and rejection of Israel’s escalatory measures in the complex, known to Muslims as Al Haram Al Sharif, by preventing the entry of worshippers into the mosque.
