Hundreds of Jordanians participated in a march in the downtown of the capital Amman on Friday, protesting against U.S. President Donald Trump's U.S. Middle East peace plan commonly known as the "Deal of the Century."

The protesters demanded the Jordanian Government show action against the Jordanian-Israeli Gas deal as well, calling for an end to the "deal of shame."

The protests expressed that terminating the Gas deal will be the first real step for the Jordanian government towards the rejection of the Middle East peace plan which was announced by Trump last January.

The protest was organized by Jordan's national campaign to topple the gas deal and was attended by activists, the Islamic movement in Jordan and social movements.
