He added that the Jordanian hospital in Gaza will remain as a testament to Jordan's commitment to our people and brothers in the Gaza Strip.

He emphasized that His Majesty King Abdullah, from the very first moment of the escalation, has been striving to crystallize an international effort primarily aimed at formulating an international stance to stop the war on Gaza and the necessity of facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian brothers, Al Mamlaka TV reported. 

Khasawneh pointed out that silence is not an acceptable option regarding the systematic war and destruction that the people in Gaza are subjected to. This silence represents a disregard for the human and legal rights of the people of Gaza to protection and is silent about Israel's blatant violations of international law.

Meanwhile, His Majesty directed the continuation of the Jordanian field hospital in the Gaza Strip to continue its service journey and support the health system in treating the wounded and sick, as confirmed by the National Center for Security and Crisis Management.

"The international community must deal with the war on the Gaza Strip according to specific standards, condemning the killing of Palestinian civilians just as it condemned the killing of Israeli civilians; because civilian casualties, in the end, are victims regardless of their identity, nationality, race, or religion," according to Khasawneh.

He stated that Jordan firmly rejects any actions or steps leading to the forced displacement of our Palestinian people in Gaza, the West Bank, or any of the Palestinian cities and villages. This is a red line that will push the entire region into a deeper and broader conflict.

Khasawneh said, "In response to the directives of His Majesty the King, the Council of Ministers decided to allocate 3 million dinars to support the budget of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and half a million dinars for medical equipment and medicines for our people in the Gaza Strip."
