Jordan demands Israel ‘immediately stop' its aggression against Gaza
10 Palestinians killed Friday in Israeli raids on enclave
Jordan demanded Friday that Israel “immediately stop” its aggression on the Gaza Strip.
The Foreign Ministry urged the international community to take "urgent and effective" action to stop the escalation and provide protection to the Palestinian people.
Spokesman Haitham Abu Al-Ful warned of "dangerous" consequences for the Israeli escalation and terrorizing civilians, which "will only increase tension and violence and deepen the environment of despair."
He said: “The solution to the problem of the Gaza Strip and preventing the escalation of violence lies in finding a real political horizon by returning to the negotiating table to achieve a just peace on the basis of the two-state solution."
Al-Ful also said what would solve the problem would also be "lifting the unjust siege on the Gaza Strip, promptly addressing the humanitarian needs in it, and respecting the rules of international law and resolutions of international legitimacy."
Earlier Friday, the Israeli army said it began launching raids on targets of the "Islamic Jihad" movement in the Gaza Strip.
The Gaza Health Ministry said the raids resulted in the deaths of 10 Palestinians, including a girl and a woman.
Islamic Jihad spokesman Daoud Shehab announced that Israel assassinated Tayseer al-Jabari, a prominent leader in Saraya al-Quds, the armed wing of the movement.
And the Al-Quds Brigades said more than 100 missiles were fired at Israeli cities and towns, including Tel Aviv.
