The U.S. Embassy in Amman informs U.S. citizens that protests may take place in Amman and in other cities across Jordan on February 24, 2017, likely following Friday prayers. Online postings call for a rally to begin following Friday prayers at the Al Husseini Mosque in downtown Amman. Demonstrations are also expected in other communities around Jordan.
The Embassy urges U.S. citizens to avoid demonstrations. We remind U.S. citizens that protests intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. As always, please be aware of your surroundings and monitor local media.
