Protest at Israeli Embassy in Amman Thursday

10/12/2011

AMMONNEWS – A group of political activists called on citizens to partake in a protest scheduled to take place near the Israeli Embassy in Amman on Thursday.

In a press statement, the group said that their movement and protest against the presence of an Israeli diplomatic mission on Jordanian land is not “incidental or seasonal” but ongoing until Jordan expels the mission and closes the Israeli Embassy.

The group, which has been holding the protest in front of Al Kaluti Mosque in Rabiya district near the Israeli Embassy, will hold its 82nd protest on Thursday at 6 PM.

It is noted that the a group on the social networking site ‘Facebook’ had called for a “million person march” against the presence of the Israeli Embassy in Amman back in September, which caused Israel to recall its diplomatic mission for several days out of fear of a similar incident as took place at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.

The Israeli Ambassador and the diplomatic mission returned to Amman after the weekend following the protest in which only several hundred protesters took part in.
