Jordan’s prime minister hailed Palestinian rioters on Temple Mount for attacking Israelis going to pray at the site, which is Judaism’s holiest.
Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh said he applauds each Palestinian and Jordanian Islamic Wakf laborer who stands tall like a turret and the individuals who throw surges of rocks at the supporters of Zionists who are debasing al-Aqsa Mosque while under the security of the Israeli occupation government.
Khasawneh rehashed an unsubstantiated case disseminated by the Palestinians that Israel intends to divide the Temple Mount into separate areas and hours for Jews and Muslims.
Before Sunday, Jordan’s Foreign Ministry called Israel’s minister to criticize him for the “infringement” at the site when Israel permitted security forces to enter.
In a call between Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi on the continuous conflicts, the two focused on the need to stop all unlawful and provocative Israeli estimates in Al-Aqsa Mosque, as per an assertion from the Hashemite Kingdom.
On Sunday, conflicts between Palestinian rioters and Israeli security forces broke out as Palestinians attempted to prevent Jewish worshipers from entering the sacred site in a repeat of previous violence.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Israeli security forces had “free rein” to take any action expected to guarantee security for the residents of Israel, drawing rage from the Arab world.
728 Jews visited the Temple Mount on Sunday morning, the first intermediary day of the Passover celebration, as indicated by the Temple Mount Administration. The flashpoint site, which is Judaism’s holiest as the site of the scriptural Temples and the third holiest in Islam, is constrained by the Jordanian Islamic Waqf.
As per the Waqf’s ongoing strategy, Jews are permitted to visit the site however is illegal to uttering prayers — much softly or masked as a message — prostrating or playing out some other strict ceremonies.
Many masked Palestinian rioters accumulated rocks and iron bars to prevent Jews from entering. Videos film showed Palestinians hitting Jewish worshipers in the head en route to pray. Palestinians are heard chanting on Hamas’s side “with our souls and blood, we will redeem you, O Aqsa.”
“The Jordanian Foreign Ministry explained that “Israel’s actions to change the norm on the Mount are a hazardous heightening. Israel bears consequences regarding the results of the current acceleration that is thwarting efforts invested to achieving calmness.”
“The Israel Police has no option to coordinate visits by non-Muslims there, and just the Muslim Waqf does,” the service added.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas approached the U.S. to intercede.
