Thousands of Jordanians demonstrate outside Israeli embassy in support of Gaza

Thousands of Jordanians have demonstrated near the Israeli embassy in Amman to voice their support for Palestinians in Gaza.

The demonstrators gathered in front of the Israeli embassy on Friday, calling on the Jordanian government to cancel its highly unpopular peace treaty with Israel and end all its other agreements with the occupying regime.

Protesters slammed the latest Israeli crimes, in particular its attacks on hospitals in Gaza.

They expressed their support for Palestinian resistance groups and reiterated their demand for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

They also called on the Jordanian government to cancel its peace treaty with Israel and close the regime’s embassy in the Arab country.

The protesters also demanded that the export of goods from Jordan to the occupied territories be stopped, as they chanted slogans in support of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994 amid efforts at the time by the US to work out a so-called two-state solution to the Palestinian conflict, an initiative which has failed to bear fruit after nearly three decades.
