Protests Outside the Israeli Embassy in Amman to Condemn Gaza War

(AWP) - Dozens took part in a protest outside the Israeli embassy in the Jordanian capital, Amman, on Monday evening to condemn the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

Protesters expressed solidarity with the people of Gaza, and raised Palestinian flags, pro-Palestinian placards, and pictures of children from Gaza who were killed in the war.

They called for ending normalization, closing the Israeli embassy in Amman, severing relations between Jordan and Israel, and cancelling the peace treaty between the two countries.

Children and women joined the daily sit-in, ongoing since the war began in Gaza, voicing support for the women and children in the battered enclave in the face of what they described as “genocide.”

In protest of the war, Jordan is witnessing marches organized by parties and organizations during which the demonstrators demand the severance of relations with Israel and cancelling all agreements and treaties signed with it, including the peace treaty signed by Jordan and Israel in 1994, known as the Wadi Araba Treaty.

Israel resumed its airstrikes on Gaza on Friday after a seven-day humanitarian truce that saw prisoner exchanges.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned last week that the Palestinians are facing a direct threat to their lives.

He said, “We cannot stand idly by while the massive destruction caused by this brutal war in Gaza threatens more victims and hinders progress towards a better future for the world.”
