AMMAN —AlGhad— Police reopened the roads leading to the US Embassy in Amman after the tribesmen of the Jafr defendant, Maarik Tawayha, of the Huweitat tribe, turned back to Maan, when they were supposedly going to hold a protest in front of the Embassy today, Wednesday.

The protesting tribesmen left Maan for the Capital today, early in the morning, to hold a protest, demanding the release of 1st Sgt Maarik Abu Tayeh.

Ahead of the supposed protest, the highways leading to Amman from the South were swarmed with police checkpoints, witnesses and a police source confirmed.

The soldier was sentence last Monday to life in prison and hard labour after being found guilty of two out of three charges, including multiple murders.

Since the sentencing, the residents of Jafr, in Maan, held consecutive protests against the verdict, and earlier today, Wednesday, defence layer, Subhi Mawas, filed an appeal.
