Jordan opposition calls for expelling Israeli diplomats from Amman

Jordan's Islamic Action Front (IAF), the country's largest opposition party, on Saturday called on the government to expel the Israeli diplomats from the Arab kingdom, Xinhua reported.

"The government should take a fast step in removing the Israeli embassy from Amman in light of continued Zionist violations against the sovereignty and interests of Jordan," the IAF said in a statement posted on its website Saturday.

Arab nations reject all ties with the "Zionists" and the Arab leaders should take that into account, the IAF said.

The IAF also commended the protests by the Egyptians against the Israeli embassy in Cairo.

On Friday night, some Egyptian protestors broke into a building which houses the Israeli embassy in Cairo. They destroyed a newly- built concrete wall outside the embassy building and lowered the Israeli flag and threw documents out of the windows.

The Israeli ambassador to Egypt and most of embassy staff were carried back home by an Israeli plane early Saturday.

Three persons died and 1,049 others were injured during the protests at the Israeli embassy and in downtown Cairo on Friday night.
