International condemnation of Israel grows over Jerusalem violence, evictions

Israel faced growing international condemnation Sunday over the ongoing violence in Jerusalem, amid repeated clashes between police and Palestinian worshipers in Jerusalem’s Old City, as well as over the expected eviction of Palestinian families in the city’s east

In recent days, dozens of Palestinians have been wounded in clashes near the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount compound. The site is considered the holiest in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam. It has been a tinderbox for serious violence in the past.

The Jordanian and Egyptian foreign ministries both summoned Israel’s envoys on Sunday to lodge protests over the Temple Mount unrest.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II, who acts as custodian of Jerusalem’s Muslim holy sites, condemned what he called “Israeli violations and escalating practices” and urged Israel to halt its “provocations against Jerusalemites.”
Israel’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that its charge d’affaires in Amman was summoned for a dressing down over “events in Jerusalem.”
