Following Sunday's riots at the Temple Mount, Jordan called on Israel to prevent the entrance of security personnel and Jewish extremists to the east Jerusalem compound that houses the al-Aqsa Mosque.

"Any new provocative attempts by Israeli troops and Jewish extremists such as what happened today in the shrine's compound represent a flagrant violation of international law and conventions and set the stage for more tension and acts of violence," Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communication Nabil Sharif said in a statement.

"Jordan, out of its historical responsibilities in being the custodian of the holy places in Jerusalem, is extremely worried about what is taking place and warns against going ahead with this provocative behavior on the part of Israeli troops," he added.
