The correspondent pointed out that a parliamentary memorandum was submitted, demanding the Jordanian government to put an end to the occupation's wave of aggression against the Palestinians.
At the same time, the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned allowing Israeli settlers to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday, warning of a situation that may potentially escalate in response to the "provocative and escalatory" march in Al-Quds.
Haitham Abu Al-Foul, the official government spokesperson, affirmed that the Israeli incursions "constitute a violation of the existing historical and legal situation, as well as international law."
He added that "Al-Aqsa Mosque, in its entirety, is a place of worship purely for Muslims," stressing that the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf organization in Jordan is the legal entity authorized to manage the affairs of Al-Aqsa Mosque and regulate entry to it.
Abu Al-Foul called on "Israel" to stop "the practices and violations against Al-Aqsa Mosque and to respect its sanctity."
Dozens injured, 20 arrested in Al-Quds as "Flag March" continues
On Sunday, 24 Palestinian civilians were injured in attacks by Israeli occupation forces and settlers in occupied Al-Quds, coinciding with the launch of the provocative Israeli "Flag March".
The Palestinian Red Cross in occupied Al-Quds reported that its crews treated 24 injuries from rubber-coated metal bullets, beatings, and pepper gas spraying in the vicinity and inside the Old City. The organization later announced that the number of injuries reached 40.
The Red Cross added that the Israeli occupation police beat their crew members in the vicinity of Bab Al-Amoud, while they were trying to reach one of the casualties, noting that they opened a field hospital in the ambulance center in Al-Sawwana neighborhood to treat the injuries.
Local sources reported that dozens of Palestinians marched with Palestinian flags on Salah El-Din street in occupied Al-Quds in response to the "Flag March" in occupied Al-Quds.
The occupation forces installed iron barracks in Bab Al-Amoud area this afternoon, deployed their forces in the neighborhoods of the occupied city of Al-Quds, and emptied the area around Bab Al-Amoud from the presence of Palestinians to secure the provocative march.
20 civilians have been arrested so far in the vicinity of Bab Al-Amoud and in the neighborhoods of the Old City and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
