Jordan’s Minister for Information and Communication, Mohammed al-Momani, last Thursday officially announced the departure of the Israeli ambassador to Amman, Daniel Nevo.

In a press conference held on Wednesday evening, Al-Momani said that the acting Foreign Minister, Hussein al-Majali, had summoned Nevo last Thursday.

Al-Majali passed on information on the Amman protest against the Israeli violation in Jerusalem, settlers attack on worshiper in Al-Aqsa Mosque and the detention of the mufti Sheikh Mohammed Hussein.

In the wake of the wide-spread Israeli attacks on Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque that began the last week, Jordanian parliament approved a resolution last Wednesday to expel the Israeli ambassador to Amman and to summon the Jordanian ambassador to Tel-Aviv.

One of the parliamentarians called for the Jordanian king to declare war on Israeli in protest at the attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the continuous invasions of the mosque by settlers.
