Jordan: Israeli ‘provocations’ at Temple Mount will harm ties

Jordanian PM Abdullah Ensour is warning that Jordanian-Israeli ties will be harmed if the ongoing “Israeli provocations” at the Al-Aqsa Mosque continue, Jordan’s Petra news agency reports.

Ensour says that Jordan is keeping “all legal and diplomatic options open” with regards to “Israeli assaults on Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Speaking to the pan-Arab, London-based newspaper Al-Hayat, Ensour says that Israel, as the occupying power, is responsible for maintaining the status quo in Jerusalem, and accuses the Jewish state of trying to violate international law.
