The Jordanian government sent the Israeli Embassy in Amman a memorandum of protest over the "repeated incursions at Temple Mount," the Jordanian daily newspaper al-Ghad reported Wednesday.
Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad al-Mumni said that in the memorandum, the government emphasized that it opposes and condemns the incursions of Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick, as well as the attempts to change the historic status quo at the compound.
In the communique sent to the Israeli embassy, Jordan demanded Israel stop the provocative actions on Temple Mount, claiming that they "stand in contrast to the efforts being made to calm tensions over al-Aksa Mosque."
Mumni stated that the Jordanian Foreign Ministry will continue inspecting the situation at al-Aksa and will keep working judicially and diplomatically to end Israeli violations against the holy places in east Jerusalem.
