Demonstration Alert – U.S. Embassy – Amman

Location: Jordan

Event: The Embassy is aware of reports of individuals protesting, burning tires, and throwing stones at vehicles on streets and highways in Jordan.  Some highways, especially in the south, have experienced temporary closures.  These incidents appear to be related to the ongoing truckers’ strike.

U.S. government personnel are advised to avoid large crowds and protests, to move away from them as expeditiously as possible, and to turn around and seek an alternate route around any road closings.

Actions to Take:

  • Avoid large crowds and protests
  • Seek alternate routes around road closings
  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • Monitor local media
  • Contact the police by dialing 911 if you are in immediate danger
