The Foreign Ministry on Tuesday summoned the Israeli ambassador to the ministry headquarters after Israeli forces intercepted the Jordanian ambassador to Tel Aviv while entering Al Aqsa Mosque.
Ministry Spokesperson Sinan Majali stated that the Israeli ambassador had been notified with a strongly worded letter for immediate transmission to his government, where the letter affirmed the government’s condemnation of all measures aimed at unacceptable interference in the affairs of Al Aqsa Mosque, according to a Foreign Ministry statement.
Majali said that the letter likewise reminds Israel that the Jordan-run Jerusalem Awqaf and Aqsa Affairs Department has the exclusive authority to administer the holy site’s affairs and manage entries to the site.
