OCCUPIED JERUSALEM/AMMAN —AlGhad— Israeli Knesset Speaker, Yuli Edelstein, insulted the Jordan House Speaker, Atef Tarawneh, over his statements condemning Israeli transgressions against the sanctity of the Aqsa Mosque and the residents of the occupied city of Jerusalem, saying he’d best “Shut Up”, to which Tarawneh said he will not steep to their level.

Knesset Speaker, in a statement Monday afternoon, described Tarawneh’s statements as a ‘dangerous parliamentary development’.

Previously, Tarawneh had underlined the martyrdom of the three Palestinians who carried out an operation in Jerusalem last Friday, killing two Israeli police officers.

Tarawneh said “the blood of the brave martyrs will only add to the sanctity of the holy land”.

As a response, Edelstein told Tarawneh he’d best shut up.

Earlier today, Speaker Tarawneh confirmed to AlGhad that he will not be steeping to the Israeli official’s level.

The House has begun to make notes of all the discriminatory and racist polices enacted by the Knesset to support settlement and occupation, Tarawneh Added.

So far, according to the Speaker, there have been 129 bills ratified by the Knesset since 2015, all supporting the advancement of further occupational transgressions.

His Majesty, King Abdullah II, has always warned against Israeli meddlings in the affairs of Islamic and Christian sanctities, Tarawneh stated.

Hence, the consequences of any such developments could at any point turn into a catastrophe, Tarawneh said, and it is Jordan’s role to sustain stability in the region, as best we can.

Moreover, the Speaker maintained that the proper response will be in the results of our efforts, over the next number of days, to expose the occupation’s infringements against every right there is, he said.
