Jordan official calls on Israel to stop excavations in Old Jerusalem

Published: 05.30.07, 20:39 / Israel News

A Jordanian official called on Israel Wednesday to stop archaeological excavations in the Old City of Jerusalem, the official Petra news agency reported.

 

Israel has been carrying out excavations on a ramp leading up to a disputed holy site. The digging has sparked clashes between police and Muslims in Jerusalem and touched off fierce criticism throughout the Muslim world. "Israel must stop its continuos practices and measures to Judaize the city and change its Arab and Islamic characteristics," Said Abdullah Kanaan, the head of Jordan's Royal Committee for Jerusalem's Affairs.
