Jordanian Protestors Demand Action Against Israel Amidst Declining Participation

Jordan sees fourth consecutive day of anti-Israeli marches with majority of participants being teenagers and students

Since the past four nights, demonstrations against Israel have been taking place near the Israeli Embassy in Amman, Jordan. Each night, protesters have tried to approach the embassy but were stopped by police and gendarmes, resulting in multiple detentions. Despite the decline in participation, mostly teenagers and students are attending these protests.

The protesters are demanding concrete actions from the Jordanian government to address what they see as Israeli aggression against Palestinians. Their demands include revoking all agreements with Israel, such as the Wadi Arba agreement (peace treaty) and gas agreement. Additionally, they want a stop to land deliveries of goods from Persian Gulf countries through Jordan and a ban on vegetable exports.

These protests highlight growing tension and dissatisfaction among certain segments of Jordan’s population regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The government must carefully consider these demands while working towards finding a resolution that satisfies both protesters and maintains peace and stability in the region.
