Thousands of Jordanians took to the streets of the capital on Friday in an expression of solidarity with Gaza.

Protesters took part in two separate parades with more than 1,500 marching in central Amman while around 500 more walked from the Professional Associations Complex to the Fourth Circle area of the city. Participants chanted in Arabic, "Gaza blood Is precious" and "set Hamas free."

During the march held by the Muslim Brotherhood in the centre of the city, women, men and children walked in downtown Amman and held banners denouncing the Israeli offensive.
