Jordan Blames 'Extremist Settlers' for Temple Mount 'Aggression'


Jordan's Minister for Media Affairs, Mohammad Momani, strongly condemned Israeli "aggression" at the Temple Mount on Monday, 24 hours after Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel ascended the mount in a pre-planned visit to the Mount that was cut short by police. Ariel's visit was cut short by Waqf authorities on Sunday, despite the fact that it was heavily pre-planned. The Mount had been closed to visitors all day due to a bout of Muslim rioting at the site.
