AMMAN — The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (ISESCO) committee for archaeologists on Thursday rejected any Israeli attempts to strip Jordan of its custodianship of Al Aqsa Mosque and other Islamic and Christian sites in occupied Jerusalem.

The panel, which concluded its meeting in Amman on Thursday, said such attempts violate all international agreements.

The ISESCO committee warned against the Israeli procedures to change the Jordanian custodianship, citing the recurrent Israeli violations and assaults on Al Aqsa Mosque and its facilities.

Committee members also urged government institutions and civil community commissions in the Muslim world to plan initiatives in the face of illegal Israeli practices against Jerusalem.
