Germany calls Al Aqsa visit by new Israeli minister a provocation

GERMANY rejects unilateral steps that endanger the status quo on the Al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem, said a foreign ministry spokesperson, calling a visit there by Israel’s new far-right national security minister a provocation.

“We expect the new Israeli government to commit to a continuation of the tried and tested practice around the holy sites in Jerusalem and to put a stop to further deliberate provocations,” said the spokesperson at a regular government news conference.

The Israeli minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, briefly visited the Al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem on Tuesday, a site also revered by Jews, angering the Palestinians and drawing a slew of condemnations.
