Hundreds of Jordanians took to the streets of the Jordanian capital Amman yesterday following Friday prayers to protest the gas deal signed between Israel and the Jordanian government.
Protesters raised banners and expressed their refusal to accept the gas deal with Israel, which it will provide Jordan with ‘stolen gas’.
The protesters chanted, “People want to end gas deal,” and “From South to North, the gas of the enemy is an occupation.” They criticized the new Jordanian Prime Minister, Hani Almilqi, adding, “Jordan is not for sale.”
