Jordanian protesters marched in Amman this past Friday (Sept. 30), carrying banners and shouting slogans against the Jordanian government and Israel.

The demonstration was held to protest against the new Jordan-Israel gas deal in which the Leviathan natural gas consortium signed a $10 billion, 15-year gas deal with Amman.
