Jordan holds Israel responsible for killing Jordanian citizen

Amman, May.13 (Petra) -- The Israeli government, as the occupying power, bears responsibility for the shooting and killing of a Jordanian citizen in the occupied East Jerusalem on Saturday, the government said.

In a statement issued today, State Minister for Media Affairs, the government's spokesman, Mohammad Al-Momani, said the Ministry of Foreign and Expatriates Affairs is following-up, through the Jordanian Embassy in Tel Aviv, on the killing of Jordanian citizen, Mohammad Abdullah Salim Al-Kasji, to find out the details and circumstances of the incident.

The government condemned as "terrible" the crime committed against the Jordanian citizen and demanded Israel to reveal the full details of the crime.

Al-Kasji has recently left the Kingdom through the Sheikh Hussein crossing, northern Jordan, via Israeli tourist visa and didn't return with the tourist group that he traveled with.
