` Around 1000 people demonstrated near `Israeli Embassy ‘ in Amman for the killing of a `Jordanian ‘ judge ‘

#AceWorldNews Around 1,000 people demonstrated Friday near the Israeli embassy in Amman to protest the killing of a Jordanian judge by Israeli soldiers, AFP reported.

Raed Zeiter, 38, a Palestinian-Jordanian, was shot at a border crossing Monday. Israeli troops said he attacked them, igniting a diplomatic row between Israel and Jordan.

The demonstration started after Friday prayers in Kaluti mosque, near the Israeli embassy in the Rabia neighbourhood in West Amman.

Protesters waved banners reading “the people want to cancel the [1994] peace treaty.”

On Wednesday, the lower house of Jordan’s parliament demanded the government expel the Israeli envoy in Amman and recall the Jordanian ambassador in Israel.
