A demonstration to denounce the 2016 gas deal between Israel and Jordan has been reported outside the parliament building in Amman on Tuesday, March 26. The matter is scheduled to be debated by the House of Representatives on Tuesday. Increased security measures and traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration site.
Protesters have called for the termination of the agreement between the two countries which allows gas imports from the Tamar Field (Israel). The Jordanian Minister of Energy declared that its nullification would result in the loss of USD 1.5 billion. Related protests took place on Friday, March 22.
Individuals in Amman are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere instructions issued by local authorities.
