Jordan summons Israeli envoy over Temple Mount incident

Jordan has summoned Israel’s envoy Eitan Surkis over the incident earlier today in which Amman’s ambassador to Jerusalem Ghassan Majali was allegedly “refused entry” to the Temple Mount, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry says.

Israeli police — and also Jordanian reports — have indicated that rather than being refused entry, cops had briefly held him up since he hadn’t coordinated the visit, whereupon the envoy chose to leave.

Incidents surrounding the flashpoint holy site frequently cause tensions in the countries’ relations.
