The Jordanian government warned on Monday that there would be "serious consequences" if Israel continues to allow Jews to ascend the Temple Mount following a busy Sunday where over 100 Jews visited to holy site in honor of the first of the intermediary days of Passover on Sunday, according to reports by Israel radio.

The government spokesperson Mohammed am-Momeni told Jordanian media that "the Israeli occupation and settlers are violating the rights of the worshipers at Al-Aksa."

The spokesman warned that continued visitation will have serious consequences and called on Israel to immediately stop the entry of security forces and Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount complex.
