AMMAN,(PIC)– Islamic Action Front (IAF) Jordanian party condemned Jordanian retired officers’ participation with their Israeli counterparts in a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the Jerusalem Battle, saying that this meeting disregards the martyrs’ blood and the enemy’s crimes against the Al Aqsa Mosque, the Islamic and Christian holy sites, and against humanity.

The Islamic party stressed, in a statement issued on Monday, on “the need to review the armed forces’ position in light of the national and religious constants.”

The party called on the Jordanian government to take a serious position towards the Israeli assault on the Jordanian agricultural lands, warning against the government’s failure to protect the people’s properties which may lead them to abandon or sell their lands to suspicious parties.

IAF has expressed its deep regrets for the participation of some of Jordanian retired officers with the Zionist enemy in honoring the martyrs of the armed forces and murdered Israelis.

The statement said that the response to this invitation, and meeting with the Israeli killers are considered a disregard to the martyrs’ blood and the enemy’s crimes against the Al Aqsa Mosque, the Islamic and Christian holy sites, and against humanity, calling on “the armed forces to review this position in light of the national and religious constants.”

The highlight of the event, agreed participants, was a memorial service held at Ammunition Hill, the site of one of the fiercest battles. Thirty-six Israeli soldiers and 71 Jordanians lost their lives on Ammunition Hill and the adjacent police academy on June 6, 1967, Haaretz reported.

The meeting was organized by the Israeli Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF) and Jordan’s Amman Center for Peace and Development (ACPD), and funded by the German Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The Israeli veterans, unsentimental warriors in their seventies and eighties, said that they were deeply moved by the encounter with the Jordanians.
