Jordan’s foreign ministry denounces Israel for allowing far-right MK Itamar Ben Gvir and other Jewish “extremists” to visit the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City.

“The Foreign Ministry spokesperson demanded of Israel that it cease all practices and violations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the ministry says in statement.

The Jordanians also condemn the “provocative, escalatory” Flag March planned for later today, warning it could lead to an eruption of violence.
