Jordan hopes for permanent ceasefire in Gaza

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said he hopes the current pause in the Israel-Hamas conflict will “immediately develop into a permanent ceasefire.” He told the Associated Press he intends to discuss the matter with other officials attending the Union for the Mediterranean in Spain on Monday.

“What is this war achieving other than killing people, destroying their livelihoods, and again, creating an environment of hate and dehumanization that will define generations and will take us a very, very long time to navigate through toward the future that we want,” Safadi said. He accused Israel of “killing prospects for peace” by occupying Palestinian territories and said the displacement of Palestinians is a “red line” for Jordan “because we see it as a threat to our national security and will do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening.”
