Jordanian Protests: Demanding an End to Israeli Agreements and Peace Treaty

Many anti-Israeli protesters arrested near Israeli Embassy in Amman

On March 27, dozens of protesters were arrested by Jordanian police while attempting to storm the Israeli Embassy in Amman. Eyewitnesses reported that the police used batons to disperse the demonstrators.

The protests near the Israeli Embassy have been occurring for three consecutive evenings, with thousands of Jordanians participating. The protesters are demanding action from the Jordanian government to halt Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people. They want an end to all agreements with Israel, including the peace treaty (Wadi Arba agreement) and the gas agreement. Additionally, they are requesting a ban on land delivery of goods from Persian Gulf countries through Jordan and a prohibition on exporting vegetables.

Another anti-Israeli demonstration took place on March 26 in Aqaba, where some participants carried portraits of Yahya Sinouar and Hamas flags. These protests reflect growing tensions and calls for action against Israeli policies in the region. The situation remains volatile as both protesters and authorities navigate this complex political landscape.

In recent years, there has been a surge in anti-Israeli sentiment across the Middle East, with many people calling for an end to Israeli aggression against Palestinians. In response to these protests, Israel has accused Jordan of supporting terrorism and incitement against its state.

Despite these tensions, Jordan has maintained good relations with Israel since signing a peace treaty in 1994. However, recent events have raised questions about whether this relationship can survive in the long term.

As tensions continue to escalate in the region, it remains unclear what impact these protests will have on future relations between Israel and its neighbors. For now, however, both sides remain focused on maintaining their own interests and ensuring their security.
