The Jordanian ambassador to Israel, Ali al-Ayed, met Tuesday night with Foreign Ministry official and former ambassador to Jordan Yaakov Hadas for talks to clarify the current excavation going on near the Temple Mount, Army Radio reported. Jerusalem sources claimed that the Jordanian diplomat had not requested to lodge an official complaint, but rather to receive an explanation of what was being done at the site. Earlier, Jordan's King Abdullah II denounced the excavation as endangering the Mideast peace process. Islamic leaders have threatened violence if the Al Aksa Mosque is harmed as a result of the dig.
