r/MiddleEastNews - Jordan runs low on diplomatic options as tensions soar in Jerusalem

Jordan’s King Abdullah has tried with little avail to reduce tensions in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Israeli forces have carried out near-daily raids and operations in the occupied Palestinian territories this past week, including three raids on al-Aqsa Mosque.

At least 152 Palestinians were wounded on Friday when Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets, teargas and stun grenades inside the courtyards and prayer halls of the mosque.
