Jordan: Thousands of protesters denounce the American position on the Israeli war on Gaza

Thousands of Jordanians took part in a stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people on Friday, during which they expressed their condemnation of the American position towards the Israeli aggression that has been ongoing for more than two months on the Gaza Strip.

The capital, Amman, witnessed a protest on Friday with the participation of thousands of Jordanians, denouncing the American position regarding the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

The protest, which was scheduled to be a march towards the Washington Embassy in the Kingdom, was carried out in front of the Ebad Al-Rahman Mosque on Princess Alia Street in the capital, two kilometers from the embassy headquarters.

The protest was organized at the invitation of the Islamic Movement (the Islamic Action Front Party and the Muslim Brotherhood), in addition to various union and party forces.

Participants in the protest raised slogans and banners expressing their solidarity with the Palestinian people and their condemnation of the American position.

Jordan and the United States have close military cooperation, and in 2021 the two countries signed a defense cooperation agreement, through which Jordan provides exclusive places for American forces, including 15 sites, and the American side controls their entry into these places, and these forces may possess and carry weapons on Jordanian territory while performing their official duties.

During a call he received from US President Joe Biden on Thursday, King Abdullah II of Jordan called for the United States to play a “leadership” role in pushing for a political horizon for the Palestinian issue to reach peace on the basis of a two-state solution (Palestinian and Israeli).

Meanwhile, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi said on Wednesday that the United States must confront the “barbarism” of the Israeli government if it wants security and stability in the region.

Since October 7, the Israeli army, with an American green light, has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip, which as of Thursday left 17,177 martyrs and 46,000 wounded, massive destruction of infrastructure and an “unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe,” according to official Palestinian and UN sources.
