Israeli police stopped Jordan envoy from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque

The event reflected heightened level of sensitivity concerning Al-Aqsa substance under Israel’s brand-new ultranationalist government.

Jordan has actually summoned the Israeli ambassador to protest police blockage of the country’s agent throughout his visit to Al-Aqsa Mosque in busy East Jerusalem.

In a declaration on Tuesday, the Jordanian international ministry said the Israeli envoy was handed “a strongly-worded letter of objection to be delivered quickly to his government”.

The letter consisted of a pointer that the Jordan-run Jerusalem Waqf Department is the unique authority supervising holy websites in Jerusalem, consisting of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the statement claimed.

” Israel, as an inhabiting power, have to comply with its responsibilities under global regulation as well as the global humanitarian regulation towards the busy city of Jerusalem as well as its sanctities, particularly the divine Al-Aqsa Mosque,” ministry spokesman Sinan Majali stated.

Israel must “put a stop to efforts to alter the historical status” in busy Jerusalem, he included.

According to witnesses, the Jordanian ambassador Ghassan Majali was come by Israeli authorities at the Lion’s Entrance (Bab al-Asbat), at the north side of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and avoided from getting in the site on insurance claims of lack of coordination.

The site, sitting on a vast plateau additionally residence to the legendary golden Dome of the Rock, is prized by Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary (al-Haram al-Sharif) as well as by Jews as the Holy Place Mount.

The Israeli authorities, for its component, stated that Majali reached the holy site “with no prior sychronisation with cops officials”, prompting a policeman at the substance entry who did not identify the diplomat to inform his commander concerning the unexpected go to. While waiting for guidelines, police officers stood up Majali, together with Azzam al-Khatib, the supervisor of the Jerusalem Waqf. The ambassador declined to wait and also chose to leave, Israeli police stated.

” Had the ambassador briefly waited a couple of more mins for the police officer to be updated, the group would have gotten in,” the police said, emphasizing that “coordination” with Israeli police was regular before such gos to.

Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan, reporting from occupied East Jerusalem, stated that the incident goes to the heart of Jordan as well as Israel’s partnership when it pertains to Al-Aqsa Mosque substance.

” There is something called the status– an arrangement effectively that allows the Jordanians to be custodians of that substance,” he stated. “They state they do not need Israeli authorities approval to go into the site.”

‘Unusual provocation’

Video footage widely shared online reveals Majali, to name a few Muslim worshippers, at the sedimentary rock Lion’s Gate entrance to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City. An Israeli policeman obstructs his course and yells at Majali in Arabic to go back, according to the video clip. Al-Khatib gets on the phone as the visitors suggest with the police officers in the middle of the snap of the cop’s walkie-talkie.

Some 2 hrs later, Jordanian state-run media reported that Majali finally got in the compound without showing any kind of type of permission and also held talks with al-Khatib, that “briefed him about the Israeli offenses in Al-Aqsa”.

Jordan has actually defined the step as an uncommon justification, and also stated Jordanian authorities do not need authorization to enter the website because of the nation’s role as the main custodian. The kingdom has likewise warned Israel versus taking “any type of activities that would bias the solemnity of the sanctuaries”.

There was no prompt remark from the Israeli foreign ministry.

Tuesday noted the second time that Jordan has actually mobilized the Israeli ambassador to Amman considering that Head Of State Benjamin Netanyahu’s new far-right and also religiously conservative government took power. Earlier this month, Israel’s minister of nationwide safety, the ultranationalist Itamar Ben-Gvir, went to the Jerusalem divine site in spite of hazards from Hamas and also a waterfall of condemnations from throughout the Arab globe.

Jordan has actually been the official custodian of Muslim as well as Christian sanctuaries in Jerusalem since 1924, as well as was publicly well-known as the custodian of Jerusalem’s holy websites.

For Muslims, Al-Aqsa stands for the globe’s third-holiest website. Jews, for their part, call the location the Temple Mount, stating it was the website of two Jewish temples in ancient times.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem, where Al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. It linked the whole city in 1980, in an action never acknowledged by the global area.
