AMMAN — Awqaf Minister Hayel Dawood on Wednesday rejected as baseless remarks by Raed Salah, head of the Islamist movement in the 1948 lands under the control of the Israeli occupation, that the Jordanian surveillance cameras project in Al Aqsa Mosque will serve Israel.

Dawood stressed the cameras are a Jordanian initiative aimed at monitoring Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, which extends over an area of 144 dunums to document any Israeli violations against Islamic sites and Jerusalemites, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
