Protesters attempt to storm Israeli embassy in Jordan

Watch the moment a group of protestors attempted to storm the Israeli embassy in Jordan.

Protestors in Jordan clashed with police near the Israeli embassy in the capital of Amman on Tuesday 17 October 2023.

Police fired teargas to disperse protestors and barricaded the route to the embassy.

Demonstrations began after a strike on a Gaza hospital that Palestinian authorities blamed on Israel.

Israeli officials have claimed Palestine is responsible for the attack.

Jordan's King Abdullah described the bombing of a Gaza hospital that killed 500 Palestinians and injured hundreds as a "massacre" and a "war crime".
