The Jordanian Foreign Ministry on Thursday sent an official letter of protest to Israel, demanding that "Israel", as the occupying power, stop violating Palestinian Arab rights and maintain the existing historical and legal situation in eastern Jerusalem, and all respect the powers of the Islamic endowment administration.

Daifallah Al-Fayez, spokesperson of the Jordanian Foreign Ministry, condemned the Israeli occupation actions in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which he said were manifested in permitting extremists to visit and break into the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Fayez said that Israel's policy toward the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a blatant violation of international law and of Israel's obligations as an occupying power in occupied eastern Jerusalem.

He stressed that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a place of worship for Muslims only, and the Director of Islamic Endowments in Jordan is solely responsible for handling the affairs of the mosque, including granting permission to visitors, in accordance with international law.
