(Jerusalem Post) Tovah Lazaroff - Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad al Momani told the Jordanian state news agency Petra that the Israeli government "bears responsibility over the shooting of a Jordanian citizen in occupied eastern Jerusalem today that caused his martyrdom," calling the incident an "ugly crime." He made no mention of the stabbing attack on the Israeli police officer. The Israeli Prime Minister's Office said that the Jordanian response was "infuriating" and that video evidence clearly showed what happened. "It is time that Jordan ceases its double sided game. Just as Israel condemns terror attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn terrorist attacks in Israel. Terror is terror."
