Qudah stressed the Ministry's commitment to closely monitoring the situation through its team at the Jordanian Embassy in Cairo, which is stationed around the clock on the Egyptian side of the Rafah Crossing.

The injured citizen is currently receiving critical medical care at the Indonesian hospital in Gaza, and the evacuation plan involves transporting him from Gaza to Egypt through the Rafah Crossing, followed by swift transportation to the Kingdom for comprehensive treatment, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

In a broader context, Qudah disclosed that 600 Jordanian residents in Gaza, registered with the ministry, are being accounted for. Out of these, 209 have already been successfully evacuated to Cairo through the Rafah Crossing. Furthermore, 54 individuals were transported to the Kingdom via a dedicated evacuation plane from the Royal Jordanian Air Force. This plane, dispatched by the Kingdom last week to El-Arish Airport in Egypt, carried essential humanitarian aid for the Palestinian population in Gaza.
