After diplomatic incident, Jordanian ambassador to Israel visits Temple Mount

Following an incident earlier today in which Jordan’s envoy to Israel left in protest after being held up by police at the entrance to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, Ghassan Majali enters the holy site, and prays at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Footage shows Majali walking around the flashpoint site, after Amman summoned Jerusalem’s envoy over the incident.

Israel Police has decried as “fake news” initial reports that the envoy had been refused entry, saying he had arrived without coordinating his visit with Israeli authorities at the site and would have been allowed in on the first attempt had he “waited a few more seconds.”
