AMMAN — Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Monday condemned assaults on Al Aqsa Mosque by Jewish extremists.

He reiterated that Jordan does not accept any desecration of Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

He dubbed any Israeli unilateral measures illegal under international law and unacceptable. During a visit to Jerusalem, he said that such incidents undermine peace efforts.

Deputising for the His Majesty King Abdullah, Judeh toured the Dome of the Rock, Al Aqsa Mosque restoration project, Saladin’s Pulpit, and the tomb of Sharif Hussein.

Judeh said that Jordan will spare no efforts in helping the caretakers of Al Aqsa Mosque.

Meanwhile, deputising for the King, Judeh was due to attend Christmas celebrations in the West Bank, including Midnight Mass in Bethlehem.
