Thousands of people took to the streets across the Middle East, including in Jordan, to protest the Israeli military assault against Gaza and to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people.
On Friday, chaos prevailed in northern Gaza after Israel ordered the 1.1 million residents there to immediately move to the south amid an impending ground invasion following the unprecedented attack by Hamas against Israel on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the humanitarian situation continues to rapidly deteriorate in the besieged enclave after Israel cut access to water, electricity and food, and with the health sector nearing collapse.
Hamas had called on its supporters across the world to take part in a “Day of Rage” on Friday, to condemn the Israeli bombing campaign and siege of Gaza. In Amman, the Jordanian capital, thousands of people rallied, some chanting such slogans as “All of Jordan is Hamas,” in support for the Islamist, Palestinian movement. They also called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Jordan.
