AMMONNEWS - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has sent Israel, via diplomatic channels, a memo calling on Tel Aviv as an occupying power to respect the sanctity of Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, and end all provocations and violations there.

On another diplomatic front, the ministry's spokesperson Deifallah al-Fayez condemned the continued Israeli violations against Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif, the most recent of which was the Israeli occupation forces allowing hundreds of Jewish extremists to storm the mosque today.

Al-Fayez stressed that Al Aqsa Mosque, with its total area of 144 dunums, is a place of worship for Muslims only, adding that the Jerusalem Awqaf Department (JAD), which affiliated to Jordan, is the sole institution responsible for administrating the affairs of Al Aqsa Mosque.

He called on the international community to bear its responsibility in ending Israeli violations against Al Aqsa status quo.
