Hundreds gathered outside Israeli embassy in Amman to demonstrate against Operation Protective Edge.

Hundreds of angry Jordanians protesting Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip clashed with security forces during a demonstration outside the Israeli embassy in Amman, numerous media outlets reported on Thursday morning.

Jordanian police arrested 10 people as clashes erupted when protesters threw stones at the embassy in Amman.

Protesters waved flags and carried signs denouncing Israel and urging the government to abrogate the peace treaty signed with Jerusalem in 1994.

“We will launch the third intifada," the angry protesters chanted.

The Jordanian government condemned the Israeli attacks and demanded a halt to the offensive.
Government spokesman Mohammad Momani said that the attacks that killed dozens of Palestinians were "barbaric.”

He said the "barbaric aggression" had "negative repercussions on the Gaza Strip and the whole region.”
