Jordan closed Kever Aaron Hakohen to all visitors lacking explicit government permission on Thursday, after it claimed a group of Israeli tourists prayed at the site in violation of Jordanian law.

According to the Sky News Arabia website, the Israelis had entered the site “illegally,” without having received the necessary ministry permits.

The tomb, on Mount Harun near Petra, is believed by many to be site where Aaron Hakohen is buried.

According to Jordanian media, Wakf Minister Abdul Nasser Musa Abu al-Basal on Thursday instructed the official in charge of the tomb not to allow any visitors to enter the site without the ministry’s explicit permission.

The Wakf further announced it would open an investigation into the incident and find those responsible for allowing the Israelis to enter the tomb.

  1. From the people who always have a mouth when they decide Israel isn’t being fair to the Palestinians regarding the Temple Mount I guess hypocrisy is a virtue

  2. What a great way to insight the Arabs. A little bit of common sense would tell you to not make a commotion, insuring the ability for others to visit in the future. Good job!!

  3. This part of Jordan is biblical Israel. The Jordanians are occupying the land of Israel. The holy deed to the land is buried in stone deep beneath the Jordan River.
