The Kingdom of Bahrain strongly condemned the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque by a member of the Israeli government, Knesset members and extremists, under the protection of the Israeli police, as a violation of the rules of international law.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed the need to respect the existing historical and legal situation in Jerusalem, and not to prejudice the role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in managing endowments, caring for and protecting holy sites in accordance with international resolutions, providing full protection for worshipers, and stopping any racist or provocative practices which would fuel tension and instability.
