Gaza Now a Graveyard of International Law, Says Jordan FM

Alwaght- Jordanians calling for end to the Israeli war on Gaza have continued their massive demonstration in front of the Israeli embassy in the capital Amman.

They have condemned the Israeli targeting of hospitals and asked their government to take strong actions against Tel Aviv.

At least two hundred protesters were arrested on Monday, the vast majority of which were released overnight, according to Khaled al-Juhni, the office director of the Islah parliamentary bloc, affiliated with the Khazab group and Islamic Action Front, who attended the protest.

"There were men, women, young and old people all there in solidarity with Palestine. They were denouncing the [Israeli] escalation in Al-Aqsa mosque, their blockade on al-Shifa hospital and their assaults on the dignity of people," Khaled al-Juhni told The New Arab.

Jordan has allowed some protests but has cracked down on any demonstrations that approached the Israel-Jordan border or embassies.

The protests in front of the Israeli embassy have started since Sunday.

During Sunday's anti-Israel protest, Jordanian riot police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of demonstrators who marched on the regime's embassy in protest at Israeli forces' war crimes in Gaza, including storming of the territory's hospitals and mounting civilian casualties.

Protesters chanted "No Zionist embassy on Jordanian land," urging the government to scrap its highly unpopular peace treaty with Israel. They also chanted slogans in support of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas. 

Since the start of Gaza war in October, Jordan has been scene to protests calling for the government to take political actions against the Israeli regime and send aid for the Palestinians in Gaza 

Referencing the protesters, Gaza journalist Islam Badr wrote: “From northern Gaza to Amman, we hear your voice. Your chants console us. And your stance comforts our sadness. Do not abandon your actions. Continue. Those with weak hearts never live. If you’re angry, shout, if you’re victorious then increase them. Our battle is one, even if the borders are far apart, our hearts meet, and our souls connect.”
