King Abdullah: Jordan supports Christians in Jerusalem, counters violations against their holy sites

His Majesty King Abdullah has said that Jordan continues to exert all efforts under the Hashemite Custodianship to safeguard Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, including maintenance and restoration projects in Al Aqsa Mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.


In remarks delivered at a conference held in Cairo by the Arab League and the State of Palestine in support of Jerusalem on Sunday, February 12, King Abdullah stressed that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan supports “our Christian brothers and sisters in Jerusalem, as they seek to protect their churches and counter violations against their holy sites.”


Reaffirming Jordan’s support for the Palestinians, His Majesty called on the international community to guarantee their just and legitimate rights to establish an independent, viable and sovereign Palestinian state, on the 4 June 1967 lines, with East Jerusalem as its capital. He also called for safeguarding the Arab identity of the Holy City, supporting the resilience of Jerusalemites, and guaranteeing Muslims’ and Christians’ freedom of worship.
