Jordan’s House of Representatives unanimously agreed Monday to review all of the country’s agreements signed with Israel in light of the ongoing Israeli onslaught on Gaza.
In a statement, it said the House of Representatives' Legal Committee is required to provide the needed recommendations to the government on the issue.
The main agreements that are subject to review by parliament are the Jordan-Israel peace treaty of 1994, a gas supply deal signed in 2016 and other deals in the fields of water and energy.
Early in November, the Jordanian Foreign Ministry recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv to protest Israel’s attacks on Gaza.
Protests are taking place across Jordan almost on a daily basis to express solidarity and support for Palestinians in Gaza.
In 1994, Israel and Jordan signed a peace treaty under which Israel promised to respect the “special role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in Muslim Holy shrines in Jerusalem.”
As the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip entered its 38th day, at least 11,180 Palestinians have been killed, including over 7,700 women and children, and more than 28,200 others have been injured, according to the latest figures by Palestinian authorities.
Thousands of buildings including hospitals mosques and churches have also been damaged or destroyed in Israel's relentless air and ground attacks on the besieged enclave since last month.
The Israeli death toll, meanwhile, is nearly 1,200, according to official figures.
