Report: Security Increased at Israeli Embassy in Amman

Security has been heightened at the Israeli Embassy in Amman, after the riot at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo over the weekend. Witnesses told an Egyptian news agency that Jordanian police and army had increased their presence on the street where the embassy is located.

On Saturday, a Jordanian group associated with the Muslim Brotherhood praised the trashing of the Israeli Embassy, and especially “the expulsion of the Israeli diplomatic staff by the youth of the revolution.” The group called for the Jordanian government to “sweep away the center of Zionist espionage” in the country.
