Israel puts Jordanians on trial for crossing border fence to join Jerusalem protests

An Israeli court extended on Monday the detention of two Jordanian citizens who crossed a border fence with Israel to take part in protests in occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in May.

Khalifa al-Anouz and Musab al-Dajeh walked more than 30km from their hometown in Smma, near the northern city of Irbid, before being arrested on 18 May by Israeli forces in the Jordan Valley.

The two men started their day-and-a-half journey on the evening of 16 May, and crossed groves near the Jordan River.

They were arrested in the area between Bisan town, known also as Beit Shean, and Tiberias in Galilee, in the north of Israel.

Khaled Mahajneh, the legal representative of Anouz and Dajeh, said that Israeli forces blocked their journey when they were spotted wearing the traditional Jordanian keffiyeh and dishdasha near an Israeli town.
