Jordan denounces Israeli raid of Al Aqsa Mosque

By Petra - Feb 08,2014 - Last updated at Feb 08,2014

AMMAN — Jordan on Friday denounced the Israeli occupation troops’ entry into Al Aqsa Mosque on Friday.

Government Spokesperson Mohammad Momani stressed Jordan’s rejection of any form of aggression against Al Aqsa Mosque and against the freedom of worship.

Momani criticised the Israeli occupation troops for randomly shooting rubber bullets at worshippers, including the elderly, women and children, which led to violent confrontations at Al Aqsa Mosque and a great deal of damage and destruction to the compound’s gates for the second time since the beginning of this year.

Israeli forces raided the mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, from the Bab Al Magharbeh entrance and clashed with Palestinian worshippers on Friday.
