He stressed that anyone has the right to stop working as long as it does not negatively affect the work of others, adding “there are people who want to work and are seeking to continue their work”.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chains were not interrupted, and commodities did not disappear,” said the minister, who stressed that “the accumulation of goods in Aqaba cannot continue”.

He also said that “after securing the roads in the past two days, shipping goods to and from Aqaba has improved”.

According to Shboul, “there have been assaults on roads, freight, passenger buses, the  tourism sector, and an unacceptable level of hate speech”. He further said: “I do not know who stands to benefit from the demolition of electricity poles or the burning of public or private property.”

At the same time, while acknowledging that “such cases are few”, he said that “if political forces take advantage of them, they shall be dealt with through the law”.
