Jordanian MPs urge government to expel Israeli Ambassador
Another Arab country denounces Israeli crimes against Palestinians despite normalization agreements with the enemy.
The Jordanian House of Representatives will file a request with the country's cabinet calling for the expulsion of the Israeli Ambassador from Amman, state-led Jordan Radio and Television Corporation (JRTC) reported on Monday.
The House of Representatives, a 130-seat lower chamber of the Jordanian Parliament, has agreed to submit a note signed by 88 lawmakers calling on the cabinet to banish the Israeli Ambassador in protest of “Israel's” recent barbaric, violent crackdown on Palestinians in occupied Al-Quds.
On Sunday, a number of Jordanians held a demonstration near the Israeli Embassy to show solidarity with the Palestinians and reject the normalization of Jordan's relations with "Israel".
The Israeli police have been raiding Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Al-Quds, the third holiest site in Islam, using rubber bullets, noise bombs, and tear gas to prevent the people from performing prayers and observing their fasting. Israeli forces also allow Israeli settlers to enter the vicinity of the Mosque in a stark provocation against Palestinians.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, 344 Palestinians were injured in confrontations that erupted with the Israeli forces in East occupied Al-Quds and the West Bank.
In one of the latest confrontations, a Palestinian was injured Sunday by live bullets, while dozens suffocated due to poison and tear gas after the Israeli occupation forces suppressed a march in Al-Khalil that was carried out in support of prisoners on the occasion of the Palestinian Prisoner’s Day.
in another instance, an Israeli settler ran over a Palestinian child on Sunday in Khirbet Al-Deir in Tuqu' town, east of the city of Beit Lahm.
Local sources said that the settler ran over the child, identified as Hassan Suleiman (9 years), and fled the scene.
Several countries condemned the incident, including Algeria whose ambassador to the United Nations, Nazir Al-Arbawi, slammed what he termed as the Al-Quds Committee's inaction toward the Israeli brutal assaults on Al-Aqsa and all of Palestine.
