More “Israeli” Flags to Be Stepped On at All Jordanian Office Entrances
A top Jordanian unionist announced that “Israeli” flags will be drawn on the ground of all entrances to Jordan’s Professional Unions complex in Amman as well as its satellite offices around the country.
“We will draw the flag on all entrances to the complex in Amman and its branch offices in the provinces,” Ibrahim al-Tarawneh, the head of the Jordanian Dentists Union, told the Jordanian daily Ad-Dustour in an interview published on Thursday.
Last week, a photo published on the Jordanian website Jfranews showed Jordanian Information Minister Jumana Ghneimat stepping on a large image of the Zionist flag as she made her way through the main entrance to the Professional Unions complex.
While the main entrance of the complex featured an image of an “Israeli” flag plastered on to the ground, its other entrances did not as of earlier this week.
Relatively, the “Israeli” Foreign Ministry said on Sunday it had filed a protest to the Jordanian government over the incident.
The ministry said it took the incident extremely seriously and had summoned Jordan’s acting ambassador to the occupied territories to convey its concerns.
Later on Sunday, Majed Qatarneh, spokesman of Jordan’s Foreign Ministry, said that “Israel” had sought clarifications over the incident and noted the ministry was handling the issue through “diplomatic channels.”
