No live ammunition used to deter protesters in Jordan Valley: security source

Friday, a security source told Roya that no live ammunition was used to deter protesters in the Jordan Valley, despite rumors indicating otherwise. 

The security source said that videos circulating of live ammunition being used are not from protests in the Kingdom, but in other countries. 

Additionally, the source said that no protesters were injured in the Jordan Valley. 

Earlier Friday, over 2,000 protesters marched to the Jordanian-Palestinian land border in solidarity with the Palestinian people, and ongoing Israeli Occupation aggression throughout historical Palestine. 

According to a Roya correspondent at the scene, police fired tear gas when protesters broke through a police blockade in an attempt to reach the border.
