In Amman, Jordanian citizens participated in a sit-in after Friday prayers in front of the Kaloti Mosque near the Israeli embassy, called for by prisoners’ working committees and the Committee of Jordanian prisoners and missing persons’ families, in condemnation of the abuses which the prisoners are subjected to in Israeli jails.

The protesters called for canceling the Wadi Araba Treaty and moving for the release of prisoners.

Activists and families of Jordanian captives took part in the sit-in, raising photos of captives and banners condemning the Arab and international silence regarding their suffering.

A number of Jordanian national parties have also organized a march after Friday prayers in front of Al Husseini Mosque in Amman, calling for cancelling the Wadi Araba Treaty.

The participants condemned the Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the persistent official silence regarding them. They also stressed that “the right of return is sacred and that no one has the right to give it up.”

Meanwhile; dozens of young men gathered in the Karama area in the northern Jordan Valley chanting slogans demanding to cancel the Wadi Araba Treaty, to achieve the right of return and close the Israeli Embassy.
