Hizb ut-Tahrir Protest at Syrian-Jordanian border warns of foreign intervention

Tuesday, 24 May

AMMONNEWS – Jordanian authorities and security forces on Friday prevented hundreds of protestors in Ramtha, northern Jordan, from reaching the Syrian-Jordanian border during a protest against the Syrian regime’s crackdown on Syrian pro-reformers.

Hundreds of activists and members of the banned “Hizb ut-Tahrir” movement marched following Friday noon prayers from Al Taqwa Mosque in the border town in a solidarity stand with the Syrian people.

Hizb ut-Tahrir protestors chanted slogans criticizing “Arab silence” towards the bloody events in Syria, and called on the Arab League to take action to protect the Syrian people.

The protestors were stopped from marching towards the Syrian-Jordanian border and staged a sit-in near the state-run Ramtha hospital.

Several speakers blasted the military crackdown on Syrian activists whose demands have escalated to call for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad following bloody clashes in several Syrian cities.

Protestors warned against foreign intervention in the Syrian political scene, and blasted US President Obama’s speech on Thursday and US administration’s position towards events in the region.

They urged Arab intervention in resolving “Arab-Arab” issues, and warned against continued “Western intervention” in the region.
