AMMAN —AlGhad— People took to the streets, in most of Jordan’s cities and governorates, including Amman, in protest against Israeli infringements against the Aqsa Mosque and other religious endowments in the occupied city of Jerusalem, and in support of the Palestinians in their stand against the occupation.

Protests throughout Jordan were simultaneous to the demonstrations in Palestine.

In the capital, thousands joined in two protests through Down Town Amman, calling for the reopening of the Mosque.

The two protests were led by the Islamists on one side, and the coalition of leftist and pan-Arab parties on the other.

More so, Friday sermons across the Kingdom were unified, according to orders by the Ministry of Awqaf, to address the sanctity of the Aqsa Mosque and religious endowments in Palestine.

In Karak, masses rallied to partake in a public demonstration as well, in support of the Palestinians.

The protests in Karak called for the provision of all forms of support for the Palestinian people, to strengthen their stand against occupational escalations.

In Zarqaa as well, people amassed in protest, led by Islamists, calling for the severing of diplomatic ties with Israel.

As for the northern governorates, residents of Irbid marched in a demonstration as well, denouncing Israeli occupation infringements against the Aqsa Mosque.

Likewise, in Baqaa, a mass demonstration was launched, calling for the suspension of all occupational escalations against the Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians.

Stand-ins were held as well in Maan and Salt, after the Friday sermon and prayers were concluded.
