Jordanian protesters call on govt. to cancel peace treaty with Israel

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators have rallied near the Zionist regime’s embassy in Jordan’s capital city of Amman for the fourth day in a row to condemn the occupying regime’s ongoing war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

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


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.


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.


Jordanians have been taking to the streets over the past few days to condemn the regime’s crimes in the Gaza Strip.


On Sunday, pro-Palestine protesters called for the Israeli embassy to be closed down.


Jordanian riot police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators who marched towards the regime's embassy in protest at Israeli forces' war crimes in Gaza.


Since Israel launched its genocidal war on Gaza on October 7, 2023, Jordan has been the scene of huge pro-Palestine rallies as anti-Israeli sentiments have spiked across the region over the regime’s brutal onslaught. Israel’s embassy in the kingdom has been a flashpoint for those protests.


Jordanian authorities, however, have dealt with anti-Israeli protests with a repressive hand, arresting hundreds of activists and protesters after accusing them of breaking the law.


According to Palestinian medical sources, the regime’s genocide in Gaza has so far killed 32,500 civilians, mostly women and children, leaving over 74,000 others wounded.
