May 16, 2013 (TSR) – Jordan has confirmed Israeli regime ambassador’s departure from the country after he was expelled by the government fallowing regime’s attacks on Palestinians and its recent assaults on Syrian soil according to Jordan media reports.

Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications Mohammad Momani officially confirmed that Israeli Ambassador to Jordan Daniel Nevo had left the country last Wednesday (May 8), after he was summoned by the Jordanian Foreign Ministry to relay Jordan’s condemnation of Israeli violations in occupied al-Quds.

Momani, who was speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, said that all options,  including political, diplomatic, and legal actions, are on the table for Jordan in addressing the Israeli aggression and violations committed against Al Aqsa Mosque in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and in the occupied territories.

Momani reiterated that the Jordanian government relayed a “strongly-worded message” when it summoned the Israeli Ambassador, stressing that Jordan strongly denounces Israeli violations that “must stop immediately.”

In response to escalating Israeli violations in occupied al-Quds and Al Aqsa Mosque, the 150-member Lower House of Parliament unanimously demanded the government to ask the Israeli ambassador to leave Jordan, and recall the Jordanian ambassador to Israel, Jordan’s media reported on May 8.

Jordan’s Premier Abdalla Ensour has criticized Israel for its systematic deployment of special forces and setting up of military barracks around the holy site.

He has vowed to demand the UN Security Council to hold an emergency meeting should Israel refuses to end its aggression.

Backed by Israeli forces, some 100 Israeli settlers entered Al-Aqsa Mosque on May 7.

Clashes erupted between the Israeli settlers, soldiers and the Palestinians following the entry of the Israelis. Several Palestinians were reportedly injured, and several others were arrested.

Several MPs called for annulling the 1994 “Wadi Araba” peace treaty between Jordan and Israel in reaction to Israeli actions in the occupied territories.
