Crowds of Jordanians demonstrated after Friday prayers in the center of the capital Amman to protest against the start of importing gas from Israel.

The demonstrators - who set out in front of the Al-Husseini Mosque in the center of Amman in the presence of a heavy security presence - raised Jordanian flags and banners reading "For signatories of shame agreements (...) History will have no mercy, stole the gas and sold it to us, how do we study under the light of the occupation gas? How will we pray?" In mosques and churches lit by enemy gas? ".

The demonstrators chanted, "Listen, listen, (Prime Minister Omar), Razaz, the enemy gas is an occupation. The voice from Amman is what we want the entity gas, the enemy gas is occupation, the gas agreement is dropped, a free people and what is between them is not the gas of the entity, the people of Jordan are not they .. the people of Jordan It is all resisting. "

Salem Al-Falahat, the former observer of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Kingdom, told the French Press, "Today we are telling the government that the Jordanian people, in all their political directions, have rejected, rejected and rejected any normalization with the Zionist enemy. This agreement must be dropped."

He added, "We will not be silent, even if they assume that they were able to pass this agreement despite the nose of the deputies, the nose of the Jordanian people, and the nose of the Palestinian issue."

On Wednesday, Israel began pumping natural gas to Jordan under a ten-billion-dollar agreement for 15 years with Noble Energy to supply gas from the Leviathan offshore field.

The agreement stipulates that the Kingdom will be provided with about 45 billion cubic meters of Israeli natural gas as of January 1, 2020.

The National Electricity Company, which is wholly owned by the government, announced in a statement that "the experimental pumping will continue for a period of three months, according to the technical and contractual requirements between the two sides."

And that gas agreement - since it was signed about three years ago - is not popular with the popular and parliamentary circles.

On March 26, the parliament called on the government to cancel the agreement.

The MP Wafaa Bani Mustafa submitted a proposal by law to cancel any agreements to import gas from the "Zionist entity" and the council approved the proposal and referred it to its legal committee with the urgency characteristic.

In her speech to Al-Jazeera Net, Bani Mustafa believes that the law will constitute "an additional pressure card on decision makers in the Jordanian state to stop this agreement and any future agreements with the Zionist entity."

On September 16, the Constitutional Court confirmed that the gas agreement the National Electricity Company concluded with Tel Aviv "does not require the approval of the National Assembly" in its two chambers (the House and Senate).

The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Hala Zawati, stated - during a meeting in the House of Representatives last week - that the price of returning from the Israeli gas agreement amounts to $ 1.5 billion, and is paid once as a penalty clause.

Jordan is witnessing difficult economic conditions in light of a public debt exceeding forty billion dollars.
