Israel is considering possible responses to the conduct of the Jordanian foreign minister, who summoned an Israeli representative to Jordan for a clarification call. Political sources claim that Jordan's conduct in recent days has encouraged tensions in Jerusalem and backed Arab riots in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem noted that Israel eased restrictions for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but its leniency was used to gather and store stones to throw at security forces and Jewish worshipers and to engage in riots. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid have claimed over the past few months that there has been a significant warming in Israeli-Jordanian relations and recently King Abdullah met with Defense Minister Benny Gantz and President Isaac Herzog.

Earlier, Jordanian Prime Minister Bisher Al-Khasawneh criticized the conduct of Israeli security forces on the Temple Mount.
