Jordan will close the branches of Jordanian banks in the Palestinian territories should they be targeted by Hamas activists, a government spokesman warned Monday. The statement indicated continuing tension between the Palestinians' ruling party and Jordan, which has accused Hamas of stockpiling weapons for attacks in the kingdom. Hours before Jordanian spokesman Nasser Judeh issued the warning, about 30 Palestinians caused a rumpus inside the main branch of Arab Bank in Gaza City, demanding unpaid government salaries. The people screamed at the Jordanian bank's manager and threw water on his desk, forcing staff to call in the police and close the branch.
