The PSD also called on Jordanians to stop firing guns at weddings, saying that it is a dangerous and reckless practice that has claimed the lives of innocent people.

The PSD also urged Jordanians to stand up against the practice of shooting guns at weddings and help to end this deadly trend.
Al-Fanatessa's death is a tragic reminder of the dangers of firing guns at weddings. It is a practice that must be stopped before it claims more lives.
