Jordan’s Foreign Ministry has condemned the clashes, saying these acts are unacceptable as they undermine the holiness of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound as well as affecting safety and freedom to practice religious services of Muslim followers.

Also on Friday, Palestinians protested near Nablus in the occupied West Bank against the expansion of a Jewish settlement on the lands of Beita village. The Red Crescent said 47 people were injured when security forces fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets.
