National forum to support resistance and protect homeland announced Thursday an event under the title (Gathering of Al-Aqsa defenders) to take place on Friday outside Husseini Mosque in central Amman, in support of Jerusalem.
Hundreds of Jordanians participated in the protest titled (Gathering of Al-Aqsa defenders) after Friday prayers, denouncing violations of Israeli forces against Al-Aqsa Mosque and continued siege of Shuafat camp. Protesters chanted slogans calling for the continuation of resistance and cancellation of Jordanian-Israeli peace agreement, raising the Jordanian and Palestinian flags and banners condemning Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
– Soundbite (Captain Pilot Youssef Al-Daajah – Protester):
“Our message is to our people in Palestine who are fighting on behalf of the entire nation. They are the resistance and backbone of the nation. We say to them from here in Jordan, that we stand with them today, tomorrow and every day.”
– Soundbite (Dhaher Amro – Founder of Al-Hayat Jordanian Party):
“This protest today is by National forum to support resistance and protect homeland. This protest is a gathering of parties and independent personalities, to support the resistance in Palestine. There are two projects in Palestine, one for negotiations, one for resistance, now all support is directed towards resistance.”
– Soundbite (Khaled Al-Majali – Political Activist):
“This protest represents all Jordanian and Palestinian citizens. We want to send a clear message to the usurping entity that Al-Aqsa Mosque will always belong to Muslims, it will never belong to the Jews. Palestine will always remain an Arab land. This protest is to support our people and the resistance in Palestine. We stand with the resistance in Palestine.”
