The Jordanian Prime Minister called Israel’s actions in Gaza an invasion.

The Prime Minister of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Bisher al-Khasawneh, in an interview with the Japanese newspaper Asahi, said that Israel’s actions in Gaza are not a military operation, but a clear invasion, and that the level of cruelty is unprecedented in modern history.

“This is not a military operation, but a clear invasion. This brutality is unprecedented in modern history. A complete ceasefire is necessary,” Bisher al-Khasawneh said.


He also said that “every pressure must be put on Israel to achieve a ceasefire” and that a clear “path to advancing peace” must be developed on this basis.


The Jordanian Prime Minister stressed that as hostilities intensify in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, fears are growing that Israel will try to carry out large-scale evictions of residents in Gaza or the West Bank in the Palestinian Authority, and this would be a “clear violation of the peace agreement with Jordan

“This would be a serious violation on the part of a country party to the treaty. Our country can use all available measures,” al-Khasawneh added.

Earlier, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it carried out strikes on targets in the Al-Shabura neighborhood in the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.
