Jordan claims Waqf has sole jurisdiction over Western Wall


The Jordanian Overseas Ministry has claimed in a protest letter to the Israeli authorities that the Jordanian sponsored Waqf (administrator of Muslim holy websites) has sole authority over the Western Wall and any development tasks related to it.

The letter is believed to return as a response to Israel’s impending utility of sovereignty over areas that had been a part of Jordan previous to the Six-Day Warfare. Jordan subsequently waived its declare to those areas, designating them as a part of a future Palestinian state.
