Jordan demands investigation into deadly Allenby shooting

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Jordanian government demanded Monday that Israel open a full investigation in the killing of Raed Zeiter who was killed earlier Monday by Israeli forces at Allenby Bridge.

Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh summoned the head of the Israeli mission in Amman demanding that Israel urgently provide Jordan with a full report detailing the incident, and to open an investigation and inform Jordan of its results, a source in the ministry told Ma’an.

Judeh condemned the killing of the Palestinian, who is a judge that also holds Jordanian nationality, and said it was unacceptable, the sources said.

Former head of the Jordanian lawyers' union Saleh al-Armouti told Ma'an that Jordanians called for a demonstration in front of the Israeli embassy to storm it in protest of Zeiter's killing.

Al-Armouti demanded that Jordan cut its ties with Israel, close the Israeli embassy, and reverse its peace agreement.
