AMMAN — Jordan on Monday condemned the Israeli occupation troops’ closure of Al Aqsa Mosque gates and preventing worshippers and awqaf administration members from entering the mosque’s complex.

Government Spokesperson Mohammad Momani warned against the Israeli escalation at Al Aqsa Mosque complex, 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.
