Jordan ambassador to Israel visits Aqsa Mosque

Feb. 12, 2015 5:05 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 13, 2015 7:14 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Ambassador of Jordan to Israel Walid Ubeidat on Wednesday visited the al-Aqsa Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem where he was hosted by director of the Jerusalem office of the Palestinian Ministry of Endowment Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib.

Ubeidat toured the al-Aqsa compound accompanied by Sheikh al-Khatib and other officials and met with chairman of the Jerusalem council of endowment Sheikh Abd al-Atheem Salhab.

Sheikh al-Khatib told Ma'an that he and other officials in his office updated the Jordanian ambassador on the current situation in al-Aqsa mosque compound.

"The Jordanian ambassador is closely following up with what's going on in the al-Aqsa mosque to make sure there are no violations against the Islamic mosque. He has been notified of the obstacles the Ministry of Endowment office faces which have hindered refurbishment projects."

Ubeidat returned to Tel Aviv days earlier after the Jordanian government recalled him in November 2014 in protest against Israeli violations in the al-Aqsa compound.
