Parliament's Palestine committee denounces Israeli provocations in Al-Aqsa
(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Sep. 26 (Petra) -- The Lower House of Parliament's Palestine Committee on Sunday condemned the serious violations and provocations perpetrated by Israeli settlers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Israeli police arrest of Muslim endowment employees.
Chairman of the Committee, MP Muhammad Dhahrawi, said in a press statement that the storming of the holy compound by Jewish extremist settlers under the protection of Israeli police aims to inflame the passions of all Muslims, and push the region and the whole world towards more violence and extremism.
He added that Israel does not respect or abide by any international conventions, warning of the continued violations against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. "These are malicious attempts by the Israeli occupation that will not affect Jordan's historical position towards Jerusalem and its holy sites", the lawmaker said.
Meanwhile, the committee said the killing of five Palestinians by Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem and Jenin on Sunday is a "heinous crime", calling for "unifying all Palestinian political ranks to confront the ambitions of the occupying state, and to thwart all conspiracies aimed at confiscating the Palestinian right".
