MP Armouti, who attended, said "Palestine cannot be divided by two. We are with the people of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and with every part of Palestine."

Al-Armouti added to Roya, that the laws do not distinguish between resistance and terrorism, noting that what is taking place in Sheikh Jarrah are acts of "terrorism."

He described what is happening as "human crimes, war crimes, and genocide crimes," considering it a breach of world peace and security under the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 9.

"No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile."

Armouti called to stop security coordination between the Kingdom and the Israeli Occupation, expel the Israeli Occupation Ambassador, close the Israeli Occupation embassy, and cancel American and German foreign bases on Jordanian lands.

He pointed out that in 1976, 96 lives were lost from the Kingdom's armed forces in defense of Jerusalem, adding that "our Palestinian people will prevail."

Armouti said, "We will go to Safed, Jaffa, Tiberias and Acre, [and liberate.]"

On May 4, two Palestinians were arrested and ten others were injured during clashes that took place Monday night with Israeli Occupation police and border guards in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, according to Israeli Occupation police and the Palestinian Red Crescent.

Palestinian families are facing orders to evacuate from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, as part of Israeli Occupation settler organizations' continuous efforts to Judaize the area and house Jewish settlers in it.
