The ministry warned of the Israeli Supreme Court’s repercussions, stressing its denial of the Israeli courts authority in the occupied Palestinian territories and in East Jerusalem.

Ministry spokesperson Haitham Abu Alfoul affirmed Jordan’s absolute rejection of all measures aimed at changing the identity of occupied East Jerusalem, including the Old City.

He said that Israel bears full responsibility for continued attacks and violations by the settlers, stressing that Jordan, based on the Hashemite Custodianship over the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, will take every possible measure to safeguard the holy sites and maintain the legal and historical status quo in Jerusalem in order to make it a key for peace and a symbol for tolerance and harmony.
