Hundreds of Jordanians took to the streets of the capital Amman on Friday to protest against the Bahrain economic workshop, part of the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ proposed by US President Donald Trump as a solution for the decades-old Israel-Palestinian conflict.

Footage shows demonstrators, both men and women, waving Jordanian flags and Muslim Brotherhood flags, marching on the streets chanting slogans rejecting the proposal.

Ali Abu al-Sukkar, a leader of the Islamic Movement dedicated the march “to the mercy of the martyr Mohammed Morsi, where he had courageous positions in Palestine and Gaza” adding that the march is a rejection of the Bahrain conference “where the Arab governments are weak, and to be with the people and with the Palestinian cause.”

The US is slated to hold an international economic workshop in Manama, Bahrain on 25 and 26 June seeking to encourage investment in the Palestinian territories as the first part of Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan.
