Israeli occupation forces and settlers’ attacks on Palestinians in the city continued for days, resulting in multiple injuries among young Palestinians.

The lawmakers’ call was made during the meeting of the Palestine Committee at the Lower House, during which members agreed on a series of measures to end the plight of Jerusalemites. The meeting was attended by Director of Al-Aqsa Affairs at the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Abdul-Sattar Al-Qudah.

The committee plans to address Arab and international parliaments with an appeal to support the Palestinians and will arrange visits to committees concerned with Palestinian affairs at peer legislatures.

In addition, it was announced that a conference will be held to mark Jordan’s centenary, focusing on the role of the Hashemites in defending holy shrines in East Jerusalem.

Qudah briefed the meeting on the situation at Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif, where Jordan acts as the custodian over these sacred places, including the management of religious endowments.
