Protests in Jordan against gas deal with Israel

Hundreds of Jordanians on Friday took to the streets  of the Jordanian Capital Amman to call on the Jordanian government to cancel a gas deal with Israel.

The agreement provides for pumping natural gas by the Israeli occupation entity to Jordan this year.

The Jordanian News Agency "Amon" said that the protesters chanted slogans expressing the Jordanians' rejection of all forms of normalization with the Israel enemy, particularly the gas deal which is considered as treason.

One of the slogans says: "Enemy's gas is treason..normalization is treason".

   Demonstrators also carried placards reading "we won't pawn ourselves to occupation.. We won't be partners in the crime." "Enemy's gas is an occupation" and " Agreement of Shame is colonialism."
