Jordan's King Abdullah II has fiercely condemned “Israeli violations on Temple Mount,” claiming that they have recently increased “systematically and dangerously.”

In a speech delivered on Monday by Prince El Hassan bin Talal on the king's behalf during the extraordinary session of the Islamic Summit conference currently taking place in Jakarta, the king stated: "Israeli infringements of international law in occupied Jerusalem have recently increased in a dangerous way."

The king stated: "As the defender of Jerusalem's holy places, Jordan acted and will keep acting against Israeli violations until east Jerusalem will be liberated from Israeli occupation."

He also emphasized Jordan's support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on limited timeframe negotiations with international inspection during which the two parties will avoid taking steps that might threaten the negotiations' success.

King Abdullah's remarks came shortly after Israel and Jordan agreed to install surveillance cameras on Temple Mount, in an attempt to deescalate tensions over al-Aksa mosque.
