In protest against the Israeli regime’s closure of the al-Aqsa Mosque gate, Jordanian parliamentarians called for the expulsion of the Jordanian ambassador from Amman and the recall of their country’s ambassador to Tel Aviv.
The Palestinian Parliamentary Committee welcomed in a statement Jordan’s efforts to remove the locks that the Israelis had placed on the Bab al-Rahmah door of al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Israeli regime closed the Bab al-Rahmah door of al-Aqsa Mosque to the Palestinian faithful on Sunday evening with chains and locks that were broken by Palestinians to enter the holy place.
The Palestinian Parliamentary Committee of Jordan, while strongly condemning the Israeli regime’s aggression in Quds, expressed its concern at the ongoing attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers against al-Aqsa Mosque, the faithful and the staff of the city’s holy sites.
The Jordanian Parliament gave the go-ahead at the request of the Palestinian Parliamentary Committee, which called for the expulsion of the Jordanian ambassador from Amman.
Israeli soldiers and settlers are attempting to destroy the Muslim and Christian identities of the holy city of Quds by replacing them with symbols of Zionism.
The Israeli regime’s hegemonic actions against Quds and al-Aqsa Mosque come at a time when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted a resolution in 2016 that rejected any historical, religious or cultural link between Jews and the holy sites of Quds, including Al-Aqsa Mosque, which was instead considered a sacred place for Muslims.
The city of Quds, home to al-Aqsa Mosque, the first Muslim qibla, is considered an integral part of Palestine and is one of the three main holy sites of Islam.
