Thousands of Jordanians on Friday rallied in the capital Amman against the U.S.’ so-called “deal of the century” Mideast plan.
Despite the heavy rain, thousands of Jordanians responded to the calls by the Jordanian Islamist Movement and other Jordanian parties.
The protesters rallied for Palestine and chanted slogans calling for the protection of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque and burned the Israeli flag.
Abdul Hamid Thunaibat, the leader of Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood, was among the protesters and gave a speech warning of "a U.S. conspiracy against the Palestinian and Jordanian peoples."
Other activities and events in support of Palestinians and against the U.S. plan took place in various Jordanian cities.
On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump released his plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian dispute at the White House alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with no Palestinian officials present.
The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and suggests giving Israel almost everything it demanded.
