Jordan’s Foreign Ministry summoned Israeli ambassador to Amman on Monday, after days of clashes in Al-Aqsa in occupied Al-Quds.
Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi told lawmakers that the Israeli diplomatic official, Sami Abu Janeb, is expected at the Foreign Ministry.
Safadi also said that the country plans to host a meeting of Arab League ministers on Thursday to discuss Israeli escalation, according to Haaretz.
Jordan, serving as custodian of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, referred on Saturday to the clashes as an Israeli “invasion” and warned of the “danger of this grave escalation.”
Jordan’s king on Sunday urged the Zionist entity to “cease illegal provocative measures” in Al-Aqsa.
“His Majesty King Abdullah II stresses the need for Israel to respect the historical and legal status quo” at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the royal court quoted the king in a statement.
The king “directs the government to continue regional and international efforts to stop Israeli escalation and lobby for an international position that exerts pressure on Israel,” the statement continued.
