Protesters in Jordan, Turkey, Indonesia rally against US embassy move to al-Quds
Thousands of protesters in Jordan, Turkey and Indonesia have staged rallies to condemn the US decision to relocate its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.
In Jordan, a crowd of nearly 7,000 staged a rally in the Jordan Valley area on Friday to voice solidarity with Palestinian protesters.
In the Turkish city of Istanbul, several thousand people protested against the relocation of the US embassy to al-Quds, holding Palestinian and Turkish flags and carrying signs reading “Palestine belongs to the Palestinians” and “al-Quds belongs to Muslims.”
In Indonesia, nearly 5,000 protesters staged a demonstration in the capital city of Jakarta and unfurled Indonesian and Palestinian flags.
Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, has no diplomatic ties with Israel and has long supported Palestinian aspirations for statehood.
