Jordanian police fire tear gas at pro-Palestinian protesters

Jordan’s security forces fired tear gas at hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters gathered in a village near the Israeli border on Sunday, global media said.

There have been no reports of injuries.

Israeli forces shot at groups of protesters at its borders with Syria and Lebanon earlier on Sunday, killing at least 12 and injuring dozens.

Palestinians are marking the Nakba (Catastrophe), their term for the founding of the Israeli state in 1948. More than 750,000 Palestinians were forced to flee their homes in fighting after its creation.

Israel says it shot at the protesters because they entered the disputed Golan Heights.

Mass anti-Israeli protests and marches were held on Sunday across Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories and Jordan.
