In a statement released on Wednesday, Sinan Majali, the official spokesperson for the ministry, expressed deep concern over the continuous violations and attacks in the occupied Palestinian territories, the Jordan News Agency, Petra Reported.

He emphasized that these actions foreshadowed further escalation and represented a dangerous policy that the international community should urgently work to prevent, in order to avoid more violence.

Majali stressed the imperative of preventing the eruption of cycles of violence that pose a threat to security and peace. He emphasized that such escalations would have consequences affecting all parties involved.

The spokesperson underlined the urgent need to put an end to the dangerous escalation in the occupied Palestinian territories. He highlighted those unilateral measures aimed at constructing and expanding settlements, seizing lands, displacing Palestinians, and subjecting them to attacks were illegal acts that were rejected and condemned.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates' condemnation of the Israeli settler attacks and settlement construction reflects the growing international concern regarding the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The statement emphasizes the need for immediate action to address these violations and to restore stability, security, and the prospects for a peaceful resolution in the region.
