The Jordanian-Palestinian request was made with the support of the United Arab Emirates and China, the ministry said in a tweet on its official Twitter account.

This move is a response to violent incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex by occupation forces during the past two days, when Israeli police assaulted worshipers and those performing i'tikaf with stun grenades, tear gas, and rubber bullets, and made hundreds of arrests.

Jordan, in coordination with Palestine and Egypt, also called on Wednesday for an emergency meeting of the Arab League at the level of permanent delegates in light of the developments taking place at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
