Structure built for Women of the Wall activist group.
Jordan has condemned Israel's construction of a large platform that it built at the Western Wall in Jerusalem for egalitarian prayer at the site, Jordan's Petra news agency reported on Monday.
Israel built the platform following protests by Orthodox Jews against the Women of the Wall prayer group who were holding egalitarian and non-Orthodox prayer in the main Western Wall Plaza.
The news agency quoted Jordanian State Minister for Media Affairs, Mohammad Momani saying that the construction of the platform "is a blatant attack on the Muslim monuments and Waqf (Islamic trust) land which is an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
The Al-Aqsa Mosque is adjacent to the Western Wall.
Momani stressed Jordan's position "to exert political, diplomatic, and legal efforts to protect and care for Muslim and Christian sanctities in Jerusalem," and warned of "Jewish settlers and extremists' continued call to storm the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the pretext of Jewish holidays," according to the report.
The Western Wall and east Jerusalem was under Jordanian sovereignty between from 1948 until 1967. The Islamic Waqf trust controls the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
