Jordanians Protest Near Israeli Embassy, Call for More Rockets

Hundreds of mainly Islamist Jordanian protesters burnt Israeli flags in Amman on Sunday, as demonstrators called on Hamas to step up rocket attacks against Israeli towns and cities to avenge civilian deaths caused by Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

According to the Reuters news agency, demonstrators near the Israeli embassy in Amman chanted "Death to Israel" in one of the biggest public outpourings of anger against Israel in the last few years.
