AMMAN — Jordan on Sunday condemned the continued Israeli violations at Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, the most recent of which was excavations near the Buraq Wall, which is part and parcel of Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, according to a Foreign Ministry statement.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Daifallah Fayez reiterated the Kingdom’s rejection for all unilateral Israeli actions in occupied East Jerusalem, the Old City and at Al Aqsa Mosque, noting that these provocations are in violation of international law.

He added that the management of and maintenance works in the Al Aqsa Mosque, with its total area of 144 dunums, including its walls and gates, under international law and legal and historical status quo, is restricted to the Jordan-run Jerusalem Awqaf Department.

Fayez also called on Israel, the occupying force, to stop its violations and provocations and respect the Old City’s legal and historical status quo.
