Jordanian Students Call for Peace: Anti-Israeli Protests Near Israeli Embassy in Amman

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

Over the past four nights, there have been anti-Israeli protests taking place near the Israeli Embassy in Amman. Each night, demonstrators have tried to approach the Embassy but have been pushed back by police and gendarmerie, resulting in several arrests. Despite this, the number of participants has decreased, with mostly teenagers and students attending.

The protesters are demanding that the Jordanian government take concrete action against what they see as Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people. They want the government to revoke all agreements with Israel, including the peace treaty (Wadi Arba agreement) and the gas agreement. Additionally, they are calling for an end to land deliveries of goods from Persian Gulf countries through Jordan and a ban on vegetable exports.

These protests highlight growing tension and discontent among certain segments of Jordanian society 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.
