Jordanians stage sit-in in Amman in solidarity with al-Quds intifada
Scores of Jordanian citizens on Friday afternoon participated in a sit-in in Amman outside the Mosque of the Jordanian University in protest at Israel’s ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people and in solidarity with al-Quds intifada (uprising).
The participants carried banners and chanted slogans applauding the Palestinians for resisting the occupation and defending the Aqsa Mosque.
Organizers of the event from the Islamic Movement and youth groups demanded their government, in press remarks, to expel the Israeli ambassador from Amman and sever all diplomatic ties with the occupation in response to its crimes against the Palestinians and their holy sites.
They also called for providing the Palestinian resistance with every support possible.
In a speech during the sit-in, senior official of the Islamic Movement Ahmed al-Raqb said that the Jordanian people would keep standing by the Palestinian resistance and anxiously waiting for the liberation battle.
Raqb affirmed that the Jordanian people would never forget the crimes and massacres which the Israeli occupation and its collaborators had committed against the Palestinian people.
