Protesters in Amman call for an end to agreements with Israel

For the second consecutive day, anti-Israeli protests took place in Amman, Jordan. The Israeli embassy was targeted by demonstrators who were determined to make their voices heard. The police and gendarmerie worked tirelessly to prevent the crowd from approaching the embassy, but their efforts were in vain as two demonstrators were arrested for attempting to break through the security forces’ cordon. According to jo24.net, over 10,000 people participated in the protest organized by a youth organization.

The participants demanded that the Jordanian government take concrete steps to stop Israel’s aggression against the Palestinian people. They called for the cancellation of all agreements with Israel, including the peace treaty (Wadi Arba agreement) and the gas agreement. Additionally, they demanded a ban on land delivery of goods from Persian Gulf countries through Jordan and a ban on exporting vegetables.

Jo24.net reported that demonstrators believed that Amman should sever military cooperation with the United States, which they held responsible for aggression in Gaza Strip. Moreover, protesters insisted on opening borders for Jordanian youth who wanted to join the Palestinian resistance movement. The protest was peaceful and did not cause any damage or injuries to people or property in Amman or at the Israeli embassy.
