Gaza4Nov7AMMAN (PNIC):-Thousands of Jordanians took to the streets after Friday prayers to protest the US president Donald Trump's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the US embassy there.

Many popular marches were launched in the Jordanian capital of Amman in solidarity with the Palestinian people and in rejection of the US decision.

The participants stressed that Jerusalem will remain the eternal capital of the state of Palestine and hailed the latest UN General Assembly resolution rejecting Trump's move which is aimed at altering the status quo in Occupied Jerusalem.

Hundreds of demonstrators marched in the southern areas of al-Karak, Aqaba, Tafilah and Ma'an in support of Jerusalem against the US recent decision.

A number of protests were staged in northern Jordan in Irbid, Jerash and Zarqa with the participation of several prominent religious figures against the US "reckless" recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Protesters waved Palestinian and Jordanian flags and chanted slogans stressing the Arab and Islamic identity of Jerusalem and condemning the US and Israeli policies.
