The United States' embassy in Amman issues a warning to American citizens in Jordan in light of recent protests over a massive increase in fuel prices.
After protesters and police force clashes, the embassy cautioned American citizens to steer clear of actual and possible protest sites, such as police stations and government buildings.
In the statement, the embassy also advised Americans to keep valid travel documents on their person, since, according to Reuters, the striking Jordanians have announced that they will not quit protesting until the government "goes back on its unjust and irresponsible decision that seeks to make Jordanians poorer."
An organised protest is planned for Friday after the noon prayers, according to the embassy, which may result in fighting, considering the anger of the Jordanian public.
On Wednesday 14 November, protesters attacked a police station, leaving 14 people wounded, 10 of which were policemen. In other locations, such as Prime Minister Abdullah Nsur's home, police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse demonstrators.
All American citizens residing in Jordan should keep in touch, said the embassy in their statement, so that they are always aware of their whereabouts in case of any emergency. Meanwhile; no clear end is visible to the Jordanian crisis.
