The Jordanian Foreign Affairs Ministry has issued a statement yesterday condemning Israel’s shooting of Jordanian national, Said Hayil al-Amr, at Alamoud Gate in Jerusalem after Friday prayers.

Sabah Alrifaee, the spokesperson for the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has cast doubts on Israel’s narrative that al-Amr attacked Israeli soldiers with a knife, especially as Israel claimed that no solder was harmed.

Alrefaee noted that the Jordanian government is following up the issue in order to hand over the body of Al-Amr to his family and so that it could take legal and diplomatic measures to handle the issue.

Al-Amr entered Jerusalem on Thursday as part of a tourist group to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque. He “always dreamed of praying in Al-Aqsa Mosque,” his family told Ma’an via telephone from their home in the village of Al-Mughayyir in al-Karak, Jordan.
