AMMAN – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi on Wednesday said that Jordan has presented the International Court of Justice (ICJ), with a comprehensive case about the occupation of Palestine, addressing not only the West Bank but also the attempts to violate the historical and legal status in the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem, and the occupation’s attempts to forcibly displace Palestinians in Jerusalem from their homes, Al-Mamlaka TV reported. اضافة اعلان

Safadi stated that Jordan's stance is clear and historically rooted, and its message is firm: advocating for the rights of Palestinians is the only path to achieving peace. The Minister also reiterated Jordan's steadfast and clear position on Israel’s war on Gaza, stressing that there is no retreat from the country's stance, and it will strongly advocate for it.

Furthermore, he noted that this case, coordinated with the Palestinian National Authority, may be the most comprehensive, highlighting His Majesty King Abdullah’s efforts from day one of the aggression on Gaza to expose the futility and absurdity of this Israeli war, affecting not only the Palestinian people but the entire region.

During a meeting with religious leaders from Jerusalem and Jordan at the Husseiniya Palace on Wednesday, his Majesty emphasized the necessity of "standing united" in defending Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem. His Majesty, accompanied by HRH Crown Prince Hussein, Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, Senior Adviser to the King for Religious and Cultural Affairs, and Personal Envoy of His Majesty, reiterated Jordan's historical role in safeguarding Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem.

The international stance is beginning to shift regarding the events in Gaza, Safadi noted, which is a crucial development needed to achieve the goal of ending this aggression, emphasizing that Jordan's priority is the humanitarian situation and the ability to deliver aid to Gaza and the West Bank, both suffering from a dangerous escalation.

Safadi stated that His Majesty warned of the danger of any security approaches post-aggression, reinforcing that any Gaza approach must be part of a comprehensive strategy, considering Gaza and the West Bank as one unit.
