`Jordan’s Parliament Votes to Expel the Israeli Ambassador’ following debate over control of a `Jerusalem Holy’ site”

#AceWorldNews says that `Jordan’s Parliament’ has voted unanimously to expel the Israeli ambassador and recall its own envoy to Israel, AP reported.

The move came after Israeli lawmakers debated whether to take over a Jerusalem holy site administered by Jordanians.

The debate, initiated Tuesday by the Likud party’s Moshe Feiglin, considered a proposal for the state of Israel to wrest control of Muslim holy shrines from Jordan, but the debate ended without a vote.

No action regarding the Jordanian parliament’s vote is expected before the outcome of the Israeli Knesset debate, a Jordanian Cabinet official said.
