, , , ,

SHAFAQNA Saudi Arabia and the UAE focus on Jerusalem, to open offices in the city near the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, According to sources in Jerusalem.

They pointed out that “the information available so far is that the house adjacent to al-Aqsa Mosque, which the UAE sought to purchase, was for the opening of a UAE-Saudi headquarters there,” according to Arabi21.

One source claimed that “the objective of opening this headquarters is to carry out an activity parallel to that of the Department of Awqaf in Jerusalem, which is affiliated to the Jordanian Ministry of Awqaf.

The Saudi-Emirati attempt to gain a foothold in Jerusalem comes as a step forward regarding their role in al-Aqsa Mosque in the future, as the rival of the Jordanian Hashemite trusteeship over al-Aqsa Mosque and all Islamic endowments in Jerusalem.”

The sources added that “Saudi Arabia and the UAE tried to subjugate the Jordanian regime, to pass the deal of the century regarding the custody of al-Aqsa Mosque”.

Saudi Arabia’s decision to resume its financial aid to Jordan was a sign that Riyadh was concerned about “the rapprochement between Amman and Ankara on the one hand, and the fear of the outbreak of a new Arab Spring in Jordan on the other”, Middle East Eye reported.
