Jordan delivers Israeli charge d’affaires protest note over detention of Jordanians

Amman, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Sunday summoned the Charge d’Affaires of the Israeli Embassy in Amman and handed him a protest note over the detention of Jordanian citizens, Heba Abdel-Baqi, and Abdurrahman Marei, and the inappropriate conditions of their detention.

The ministry reiterated its demand for the immediate release of the detained Jordanians, and called for improving their detention conditions until their release and for Israel to respect the due process in line with the international law and human rights, the ministry spokesperson, Ambassador, Sufian Qudah, explained, holding Israeli authorities responsible for their safety.

Qudah said that the ministry and the Jordanian Embassy in Tel Aviv are closely following up on the case, adding that the embassy will pay a fourth visit to Abdel-Baqi and a second to Marei at their detention, once the procedures are completed.

He pointed out that the ministry is working on making it possible for Abdel-Baqi’s mother and brother to visit her at the detention center at their request.
