Mubaidin, the government's spokesperson, highlighted Jordan's historical, geographical, political, and social ties with Palestine, asserting that Palestinian issues are a primary national security concern for Jordan, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Mubaidin added that Jordanians have shown national support for Gaza since the war began, expressing it responsibly within the law, while criticizing attempts to manipulate public opinion.

He stressed that a strong Jordan supports Palestine, highlighting the necessity of upholding Jordan's sovereignty and enforcing the law.

Regarding discussions about arrests, violence, and restrictions on those showing solidarity with Gaza, Mubaidin denied such claims, attributing tensions to those attempting to provoke public security forces and engage in blackmail and agitation.

He acknowledged the role of security forces in maintaining public order but cautioned against disrespectful behavior towards them during protests, emphasizing that such actions do not represent Jordanians or Jordanian values.

Mubaidin also  warned against attempts to hijack protests for unrelated agendas, emphasizing that they do not reflect Jordanian sentiments and are aimed at undermining societal peace and national sovereignty.

He highlighted Jordan's resilience through crises, emerging stronger, and reiterated the country's clear goals in supporting Palestinian causes and aiding Gaza, while also promoting peace and preventing unilateral escalations in Al-Aqsa Mosque.

He underscored Jordan's efforts to facilitate aid to Gaza through various means and its success in garnering international support, noting Jordan's significant diplomatic influence and its impact on reshaping global discourse and responses to the Gaza crisis.

Notably, he pointed out that Jordanian rhetoric and stance have influenced global discourse and international positions to the extent that certain terminologies from Jordanian diplomacy have been circulated and utilized by prominent European and global leaders and politicians, stressing the significance of His Majesty King Abdullah’s intervention in promoting aid efforts in Washington, and the absence of similar initiatives from other Arab nations.
