Jordanian Protests Against Israel: Demands for Peace and Diplomacy

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

Over the past four nights, demonstrations against Israel have been taking place near the Israeli Embassy in Amman. Each evening, protesters have attempted to approach the Embassy but have been pushed back by police and gendarmerie, resulting in several detentions. Despite the ongoing protests, the number of participants has decreased, with mostly teenagers and students in attendance.

The demonstrators are calling on the Jordanian government to take concrete actions to address what they see as Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people. Their demands include the revocation of all agreements with Israel, such as the peace treaty (Wadi Arba agreement) and the gas agreement. Additionally, they are asking for a stop to the land delivery of goods from Persian Gulf countries through Jordan, as well as a ban on vegetable exports.

These protests are a clear sign of growing tension and discontent among certain segments of the Jordanian population regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The government will need to carefully consider these demands and work towards finding a resolution that satisfies both the protesters and maintains peace and stability in the region.
