Jordan’s king warned the Israeli Government on Monday that any further “provocation” in al-Quds (Jerusalem) would damage ties between the two countries, a day after occupation forces stormed al-Aqsa mosque and assaulted Palestinian worshippers there.

“Any more provocation in Jerusalem will affect the relationship between Jordan and Israel” which have a 1994 peace accord, said King Abdullah II following a second day of clashes at the flashpoint holy site in annexed east Jerusalem.

“Jordan will not have a choice but to take actions, unfortunately,” he told journalists in English after talks with visiting British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The kingdom, which has custodian rights over the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, on Sunday condemned the Israeli attack on the holy site.

Earlier on Sunday, Israeli Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, backed with dozens of Israeli settlers and other dozens of Israeli Defense Forces (NDF), stormed the holy mosque shortly after dawn to celebrate the so-called “Jewish New Year”.

The IDF forced the Palestinian worshippers to get out of the holy compound, as they destroyed the windows of al-Qibli Mosque.

Dozens were injured when the IDF fired rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades on peaceful worshippers.
