Jordan BDS calls ‘Day of Action’ on Feb 20 against Israel gas deal

Jordan BDS campaigners have planned a ‘Day of Action’ for Friday February 20, in protest at the country’s proposed gas deal with Israel.

In September 2014, the Jordanian National Electric Power Company signed a letter of intent to import gas from the Leviathan fields, located in the Mediterranean waters controlled by Israel. The fields are operated by US company Noble Energy and co-owned by three Israeli companies.

According to Jordan BDS activists, the import of natural gas from Israel to Jordan is worth $15 billion, “of which $8.4 billion will go directly to the Israeli treasury that sustains occupation and apartheid and funds Israeli terror operations and atrocities.”
