Egypt and Jordan criticized Israel Monday on its bulldozing of the old Shepherd Hotel in east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, AFP reported. The two countries also warned against a violent backlash in the wake of the demolition.

Egypt condemned the hotel built by the former mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini. The Egyptian Foreign Affairs issued a statement claiming that continuing Israeli settlement projects will cause a "new explosion of violence" in the West Bank.
