Clashes Erupt Near Israeli Embassy in Amman Amid Protests Against Gaza Operations

In Amman, Jordan, demontrations erupted near the Israeli embassy on March 24 2024, to protest Israel’s military operations in Gaza, leading to clashes with riot police who used tear gas to disperse crowds.

Participants initially gathered at the Kaloti mosque before marching to the embassy, expressing support for Hamas and calling for actions against Israel. The protests led to several arrests and confrontations with the police.

Given Jordan’s substantial Palestinian population, the Israeli embassy in Amman frequently becomes a focal point for protests during conflicts in Gaza. It experienced significant security measures that night, including street closures and a heavy police presence.

The protests are expected to continue through the end of March, potentially leading to further disruptions and clashes.
