Hundreds of Jordanians rioted in front of the Israeli embassy in Amman on Saturday evening, chanting in support of the Hamas terror group.

Videos from the scene circulating on social media showed a mob, some wearing masks, shouting slogans calling for the terror group to attack cities in Israel and expressing a desire to murder IDF troops.

“Oh Hamas, bomb Tel Aviv,” protesters chanted, along with phrases including “we want to go the borders and kill and kidnap Zionist soldiers,” “No Zionist embassy on Jordanian land,” and “revenge, revenge.”

Jordanian security forces dispersed the demonstration with tear gas and smoke grenades after hundreds attempted to breach a police barricade around the Israeli embassy.

Several of the protesters were reportedly beaten by the Jordanian riot police while the demonstration was being broken up.

Israel’s ambassador to Jordan Amir Weissbrod returned to the Jewish State as a security precaution immediately following the October 7th Hamas massacres.

According to Reuters, the demonstration was triggered by the ongoing military operation in Gaza’s Shifa Hospital, in which the IDF has captured hundreds of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists.

Despite a peace agreement signed in 1994, tensions between Israel and Jordan have worsened in recent years.

Queen Rania of Jordan, who was born to Palestinian parents, has downplayed the Hamas atrocities that triggered the current conflict.

She claimed that Palestinians in Gaza are “experiencing an October 7th” each day of the war, and placed the blame for their suffering on Israel.

Jewish travelers to Jordan, even those simply transiting through the country’s airport, have been harassed by customs agents and security forces.

One rabbi reported Jordanian airport workers gleefully destroying his sacred Jewish prayer objects and verbally accosting him.
