AL-SAFADI AND GUTERRES UNDERLINE THE NEED TO CEASE AGGRESSION AGAINST THE GAZA STRIP, DELIVER AID

Amman – Jordanian Minister of Foreign and Expatriate Affairs, Ayman Safadi, and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the need to stop the aggression on the Gaza Strip and deliver humanitarian aid, according to “Wafa” news agency.

They warned, during a press conference held today, Monday, in the Jordanian capital, Amman, of the repercussions of launching an Israeli military operation in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, which constitutes a final refuge for those displaced from the war, which has been ongoing since the seventh of last October.

Minister Safadi said, “Israel is using starvation as a weapon in its war on Gaza, and this tragedy will not end unless the aggression stops. We will not allow a group of extremist ministers to continue killing and dragging the region into more violence.”

He added, “There is a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, and there is no justification for committing massacres and depriving children of food,” noting that Gaza has become an open gr
aveyard not only for children, but also for international law, and the repercussions of that are devastating.

He pointed out that instead of sending weapons to Israel, delegations should be sent to press for a ceasefire.

In turn, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that hearts are burdened by the unprecedented destruction in Gaza and violence in the West Bank, considering that there will be no sustainable solution with the continuation of this war and that the delivery of humanitarian aid requires opening more crossings, lifting restrictions from the Israeli side, and a ceasefire.

He added that the level of destruction, killing in the Gaza Strip and starvation has reached an unprecedented level and famine is imminent, which requires the world to worry and stop the fighting immediately.

He noted that the sustainable solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict comes through the two-state solution, stressing that the Palestinians must fulfill their ambition to establish their state becaus
e the two-state solution is the only solution to meet the ambitions of the Palestinians and Israelis.
