King Abdullah of Jordan spoke out out against Israeli attempts to "Judaize" the history and antiquities of the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday, according to the Jordan News Agency.

Abdullah declared Israeli actions as "illegitimate" and "encouraging religious conflict."

The head of the Islamic Waqf Council of Jerusalem, Sheikh Abd Al-Azim Salhab, echoed the allegations levelled by the Jordanian king, saying that, "these are difficult times for the city of Jerusalem because of the brutal Israeli attack that targets Jerusalem residents and Judaizes their city."
