(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Jordanian government on Saturday denounced the Israeli decision to close gates of the Old City of Jerusalem and deny thousands of Palestinian Muslim worshippers entry into the holy Aqsa Mosque yesterday, the first Friday of the holy month of Ramadan



"Shutting the doors of the holy shrine before Muslim worshippers is a flagrant violation of the sanctity of the holy month and would inflame Muslims' passions," #Jordan news agency Petra quoted State Minister for #Media Affairs and Government Spokesperson Mohammed Al-Momani as saying



"Less than 10 percent of the expcted 50,000-70,000 worshippers were allowed access to Al-Aqsa Mosque on the first Friday of Ramadan because of the blockade Israeli forces threw around the entrances of the holy city," the minister pointed out




He warned the Israeli occupation authorities of continuing to provide protection for violations by Jewish extremists against Jerusalem sanctities and against the Palestinian people



Al-Momani urged the international community, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Arab League to take the necessary steps and measures needed to stop all Israeli violations in occupied Jerusalem
