According to the source, Kamel intervened after Israel was given to understand that don't intend to stop, and that the number of dead in the riots will continue to grow, resulting in the anarchy that could spill into Egyptian territory.

The settlements and military occupation required to defend them have seen apartheid-like infrastructure being established.

The Israeli Defence Force said on Twitter Monday that "many rioters attempted to infiltrate Israel, approx 10 explosive devices & several firebombs were used, & numerous shots were fired".

The Islamist group is also holding the bodies of two Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, who were killed during the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas.

"Jordan will work with Arab countries, the European Union and all global partners to achieve peace based on the two-state solution in line with the Arab peace initiative and the worldwide legitimacy resolutions".

Safadi stressed that Israel can not continue to kill innocent people, confiscate land, build settlements and take unilateral measures aimed at obliterating the Arab-Islamic and Christian identity of occupied Jerusalem and undermining the two-state solution.

Decades of efforts to find a solution have been led by the United States, which has portrayed itself as an honest broker.
