Jordanian Protests Against Israel on Four Nights in a Row: Demands for Concrete Action Amidst Increasing Tensions

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

For four nights in a row, demonstrations against Israel have been taking place near the Israeli Embassy in Amman, the capital of Jordan. Each evening, protesters have attempted to approach the embassy but were pushed back by police and gendarmes, resulting in several detentions. Despite this, the number of participants has decreased significantly, with mostly teenagers and students attending.

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

These protests are a clear indication 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 protesters and maintains peace and stability in the region.
