In a meeting with Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende earlier this week, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh warned that “Israeli violations” in Jerusalem were undermining the peace process.

“Such flagrant and aggressive attacks will drag the region into a religious conflict that will subvert the peace prospects and fuel extremism, terrorism and violence in the region,” Judeh was quoted as saying by Jordan’s Petra news agency.
