Jordan voiced its full rejection against what it called aggressive practices Israeli settlers committed toward Palestinians in West Bank city of Hebron, the Foreign Ministry said Saturday.

Jordan's Foreign Minister Salahiddin Al Bashir made the remarks when meeting with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Middle East Envoy Alexander Sultanov on the Middle East peace process.

Al Bashir urged Israel to prevent such aggressive and provocative actions and held the Israeli government direct responsibility for these acts which violate international humanitarian law.

It has been reported that Israeli settlers in Hebron opened fire on Friday in a forced eviction by Israeli troops, causing several Palestinians seriously injured. Clashes were also reported between Palestinians and armed settlers who set fire to Palestinian communities in the city.

The minister also urged the international community to act immediately to ease the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade.

Sultanov, for his part, expressed his country's appreciation of the role Jordan played in supporting the Middle East peace process, adding that Russia was committed to achieving peace and stability in the region.

The two sides also discussed the outcome of the recent meeting of the Arab foreign ministers in Cairo, which called for an Arab support to the Palestinian National Authority and its President Mahmoud Abbas and for continuing peace efforts and reconciliation among Palestinian factions.
