Jordan's Minister for Information Affairs spokesperson Jumana Ghneimat condemned "the continued tampering and illegal Israeli excavations in the Al-Buraq Wall area west of Al-Aqsa Mosque," meaning the Western Wall.

In a press statement published by the Jordanian news agency Petra on Thursday, Ghoneim expressed the kingdom's absolute rejection of the Israeli authorities' removal of the stone that fell this week from the wall.

"These grave and irresponsible Israeli actions constitute a flagrant violation of international law, in particular the provisions of the Geneva Conventions of 1949, the Hague Regulations of 1907 on Land War, the Hague Convention on the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict of 1954 and the Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing Illegal Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property of 1970, Convention on the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of 1972, UNESCO Recommendations and Decisions on the Protection of Cultural Heritage and those relating to Jerusalem. These actions also violate the feelings of Muslims and their sanctities," she said.

She stressed the need for the international community to act and to shoulder its responsibilities in pressuring Israel to stop its violations against the holy sites in Jerusalem.

If examining an ancient stone violates all those conventions, then then indiscriminate digging that occurs on the Temple Mount all the time, including the destruction of literally tons of priceless artifacts and historical objects, certainly violates those conventions and more.

Has Israel ever formally complained to the UN or UNESCO about the illegal digs on the Temple Mount by the Waqf?
