Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Thousands of Jordanians took to the streets of Amman and other cities across the Kingdom to protest Israeli provocations against Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
Participating in a march in downtown Amman that was organised by the Islamic Action Front (IAF) following Friday prayers, hundreds of angry demonstrators chanted slogans expressing their support for Al Aqsa Mosque and calling for action by Arab countries to protect Al Haram Al Sharif, the third holiest shrine in Islam.
Murad Adailah, IAF spokesperson, described Friday as a day of anger against the Israeli aggression on Al Aqsa Mosque.
“Jordanians from across the Kingdom took to the streets in support of Al Aqsa today,” he said.
Adailah noted that demonstrators want the Jordanian government to put an end to diplomatic relations with Israel and stop what he termed political and economic normalisation with Israelis.
Jihad Al Shaikh, one of the demonstrators in downtown Amman, said he took part in the rally to solidarity with Palestinians as they struggle to safeguard Al Aqsa Mosque compound from Israeli acts of aggression and also are to send a message that all Jordanians stand ready to protect Jerusalem from Israeli plans to Judaise the holy city.
“We want to send the same message of His Majesty King Abdullah that Al Aqsa Mosque is a red line,” he told The Jordan Times.
Mohammad Kanaan, another demonstrator, warned that Israeli violations against the holy shrine will only inflame the region.
“We call on Arab leaders to quickly meet in order to stop Israeli provocations,” he added.
Also Friday, dozens of activists gathered outside the Kalouti Mosque near the Israeli embassy in Amman to protest the Israeli actions.
Demonstrations and activities in solidarity with Al Aqsa were also held in several parts of the Kingdom including Baqaa, Ruseifa, Tafileh, Karak, Irbid and Salt.
The rallies started following Friday prayers, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
