I would understand it, but we have no information that this is correct
(though it might be).

TKD 5.3: <The noun conjunction {je} has an additional function: when it
follows a verb, it means "also, too". {qaleghpu' je} "I also saw you, I saw
you too">

What's the "verb" in a comparative construction? It might be that you have
to put {je} after each {yoH}, or it might be that {je} follows both {law'}
and {puS}. We simply don't know. I'd avoid it.
