Jordan Recalls Ambassador in Tel Aviv over Israel’s Escalation in Jerusalem

AMMAN, November 5, 2014 (WAFA) – The Jordanian government recalled its ambassador in Tel Aviv in protest of Israel’s recent unprecedented wave of escalation on al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Wednesday reported the official Jordanian news agency, Petra.

Petra said Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour instructed his foreign minister to immediately file a complaint at the UN Security Council against the recent Israeli violations against al-Aqsa.

On Wednesday morning, at least 15 Palestinians were injured with live fire and rubber-coated bullets, including some seriously, after a large number of Israeli police attacked Palestinians near and inside al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem.

The escalation came after a group of Jewish fanatics, backed by heavy police protection, broke through the Mosque in a provocative visit that prompted clashes with Palestinian worshipers, the last of a series of recent provocative daily visits by Jewish extremists to the Islamic holy site.
