Jordanians Protest 'Deal of the Century' Summit in Bahrain

Hundreds of Jordanians have gathered in the streets of Amman on Friday to protest Trump's peace plan and called on the Jordan government not to participate in the upcoming summit in Bahrain.

Some demonstrators carried signs reading “Down with Bahrain workshop” while others shouted “No to normalization with Israel… down, down with the Bahrain conference.”

The Bahrain summit is planned to take place in Manama on June 25-26, as the US unveiled the economic portion of its Middle East peace plan, calling for $50 billion dollars in investments for Palestine and neighbouring Arab states in the next 10 years.
