Jordan recalls envoy from Israel over ‘unprecedented escalation in Jerusalem’

November 5, 2014   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , , ,

The Jordanian government has instructed its ambassador in Tel Aviv to return home due to what Amman says is “unprecedented Israeli escalation in Jerusalem.”

 

The move comes just hours after a Palestinian resident of east Jerusalem rammed his vehicle into two light rail stations in the capital, killing a Border Police officer and injuring over a dozen others.

 

Earlier on Wednesday, police temporarily sealed off the Temple Mount to worshipers after clashes erupted with Palestinian stone-throwers who barricaded themselves with stockpiles of stones and firecrackers in al-Aksa Mosque.

 

Jordan will also lodge a formal complaint with the UN Security Council over Israeli actions in Jerusalem and its holy sites, a government spokesman said on Wednesday.
