Jordanians protest multi-billion dollar gas deal with Israel — The JPost

Thousands of protesters staged a protest in Amman on Friday to demonstrate against a $10 billion gas deal between Jordan and Israel.

The deal will supply 1.6 trillion feet (tcf) of gas to Jordan’s National Electric Power Company and marks a significant step forward in Israel’s efforts to exploit its offshore gas reserves.

But protesters said they didn’t want a deal with Israel, saying the government had other energy alternatives.
