AMMAN, (PIC)– Jordanian minister of Awkaf Abdulsalam Al-Obadi has condemned the Israeli occupation authority’s decision to demolish the Maghareba bridge leading to the Aqsa mosque.

He said that Amman would hold contacts in cooperation with international agencies to put an end to the IOA constant threats to the third holiest shrine in Islam, the Aqsa mosque.

Obadi was quoted by the official Jordanian news agency (PETRA) on Saturday as saying that King Abdullah II was concerned and was holding contacts to halt the aggression.

The minister underlined that the bridge was built on a Wakf (endowed) land, which is part and parcel of the Aqsa Mosque that has been under Jordanian management since the start of the 20th century on behalf of 1.6 billion Muslims.

The Israeli controlled municipality of Jerusalem had issued an order on 25 October to raze the bridge within a period of one month as a prelude to building a new one at the pretext that the original one was old and was posing a “threat”.

The bridge leads to the Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock and overlooks the Buraq Wall where the Jews offer their prayers.
