(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, Oct. 12 (Petra)--Jordan has condemned the renewed Israeli violations in Jerusalem, the last of which was the storming of Al Aqsa Mosque by settlers and Jewish extremists on the occasion of Jewish holidays.
State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said that such irresponsible and rejected behaviors by Israeli authorities, constitute acts of provocation of Muslims' feelings.
Momani, who is also the government spokesperson, said that Israel, the occupying force, must respect international conventions.
"Such behaviors harm relations between the two countries and undermine efforts to ease tension and preserve the historical and legal status of Al Aqsa Mosque/Haram Al Sharif," the minister said, adding that they also undermine international efforts to resume Palestinian-Israeli peace talks.
Momani urged the Israeli government to put an end to such provocative acts and respect Jordan's role as custodian of the holy sites in Jerusalem.
