The Jordanian government also urged the international community to take an immediate action to make Israel stop all its unilateral measures.

Meanwhile, Jordan's Upper House also rejected the Israeli order, which it said entails the deportation of tens of thousands of Palestinians.

The parliament said the order is "hostile and has negative consequences on the Palestinian issue and the countries in the region," said a statement issued Wednesday run by the state-run Petra news agency.

The Jordanian upper house called on all Arab, regional and international commissions and the international organizations to shoulder their responsibilities in condemning the "racist" orders and standing up to it.

The upper house also urged the government to continue encountering the order and rallying support at the Arab, regional and international arenas to condemn and reject the order.
