Jordan’s King Abdullah on Sunday night condemned Israel’s “provocative measures in Jerusalem,” after a day on which security forces stormed the Temple Mount to quell Arab rioting.

Abdullah made the remark after meeting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman.

Abdullah called on the international community to take immediate steps to protect Jerusalem’s holy sites.

He also criticized Israel’s decision to include Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs and Bethlehem’s Rachel’s Tomb on its national heritage list.
