Palestinian Refugees in Jordan to Rally in Support for Intifada
By Jihad Abu Falah
Palestinian refugees in Jordan will stage rallies on Sunday afternoon “to condemn the Israeli massacres in Jerusalem and other Palestinian towns and support their Palestinians brethren,” said their leaders in Amman and Irbid.
A rally will be held at Baqaa Camp in the north of Amman after sunset prayers, and another at the Hoson refugee camp in the north town of Irbid in the afternoon.
The Baqaa rally is organized by the Islamic-Nationalist Alliance, a grouping of Islamists and Palestinian activists in the second large refugee camp in Jordan.
Sources at the alliance told Albawaba.com that parliamentarians and other political figures will be taking part in the march.
They added that young men will be roaming the camp with megaphones to urge people to participate in the march.
Organizers of the Hoson rally expect a large participation in the activity “due to the state of rage within the camp,” according to a member of the organizing committee, who asked for anonymity.
Meanwhile, the administration of the Hussein Youth Club at the Hussein refugee camp in Amman held a meeting Saturday and decided that a rally will be held next Friday where participants will listen to speeches to key political activists representing the Islamists and the leftist Palestinian movements.
