Jordanians outside Grand Mosque slam Trump's deal of century

Protesters converged outside Grand Husseini Mosque in Amman on Friday amid a heavy security presence, chanting slogans against the Israeli regime and the deal.

Hawzah News Agency - (Amman - Jordan) - In Jordan, thousands of people have come to the streets of the capital for the third week to express their anger over US President Donald Trump's so-called deal of the century on the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Protesters converged outside Grand Husseini Mosque in Amman on Friday amid a heavy security presence, chanting slogans against the Israeli regime and the deal.

They carried Jordanian and Palestinian flags. Demonstrators rejected the government’s multi-billion-dollar agreement to import natural gas from the occupied Palestinian territories.

Palestinian leaders, who severed all ties with Washington in late 2017 after Trump controversially recognized al-Quds (Jerusalem )as the 'capital' of Israel, immediately rejected the plan, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying it “belongs to the dustbin of history.”

The leaders say the deal is a colonial plan to unilaterally control historic Palestine in its entirety and remove Palestinians from their homeland.
