King of Jordan: The Gaza war is one of the most destructive wars in the world, and attacking Rafah would be a disaster

Jordanian King Abdullah II described the war on Gaza as one of “the most destructive wars in history,” and called for it to stop, warning at the same time that any “Israeli attack on Rafah would lead to another humanitarian catastrophe.”

The King of Jordan, King Abdullah II, called for an end to the war on Gaza, considering it one of the most destructive wars in modern history.

During joint press statements with US President Joe Biden, at the White House on Monday, King Abdullah warned that any Israeli attack on Rafah would lead to another “humanitarian catastrophe.”

The King of Jordan's visit to the United States comes as part of a foreign tour he began on Thursday, which also includes Canada, France, and Germany. With the aim of "mobilizing international support" for a ceasefire in Gaza.

The King of Jordan said: “One of the most destructive wars in modern history is still continuing in Gaza,” recalling that about 100,000 people were martyred, injured or missing, “the vast majority of whom are women and children.”

He warned that any Israeli attack on Rafah would lead to "another humanitarian catastrophe," stressing that the current situation is unbearable for more than a million people who have been displaced to Rafah since the beginning of the war.

He continued: "We cannot stand by and let this situation continue. We need a permanent ceasefire now, and this war must end."

He added: "We must work urgently and urgently to ensure the continuous delivery of aid in sufficient quantities to the Gaza Strip through all border entrances and through all possible mechanisms."

He stated that "the restrictions imposed on vital relief and medical aid have exacerbated the tragic humanitarian situation," stressing at the same time that "no United Nations agency can perform the work of UNRWA to relieve the people of Gaza during this humanitarian catastrophe."

He continued: "UNRWA's work is also vital in other locations, especially Jordan, where 2.3 million are registered with the agency. UNRWA must continue to receive the support required to enable it to fulfill its role within its UN mandate."

He explained, "Jordan views the potential danger of displacing Palestinians out of Gaza and the West Bank with great concern, which cannot be allowed."

King Abdullah also warned of the continued escalation of “extremist” settlers in the West Bank and the holy sites in Jerusalem, in addition to the expansion of illegal settlement construction, which “will lead to chaos in the entire region.”

He said: "Seven decades of occupation, killing and destruction have proven, beyond a doubt, that there can be no peace without a political horizon. Military and security solutions are not the solution, as they will never lead to peace."

He called for working with the Arab countries and the international community to intensify efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza, and to immediately begin work to find a political horizon that leads to a just and comprehensive peace in accordance with the two-state solution.

Since last October 7, Israel has been waging a devastating war on the Gaza Strip that, as of Monday, has left 28,340 martyrs and 67,984 injured, most of them children and women, in addition to thousands missing under the rubble, according to Palestinian and UN data.

United Nations: Israel has prevented the entry of all special rapporteurs to Palestine since 2008

The United Nations Rapporteur on Palestine, Francesca Albanese, revealed that Israel's decision to prevent its entry into the country is not new, and that this ban has been continuing since 2008, stressing that this matter should not distract attention from the fact that repression in Gaza has reached a new level of horror.

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Palestine, Francesca Albanese, confirmed that Tel Aviv’s decision to prevent its entry into Israel is not a new matter, revealing that the latter has refused entry to all special rapporteurs on Palestine since 2008.

The UN Rapporteur’s speech comes in response to a statement issued by Israeli Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz, preventing her from entering the occupied Palestinian territories.

Tel Aviv's decision came after statements by the UN rapporteur in which she considered that Hamas's attacks on the settlements on October 7 were "the result of Israeli pressure."

Former Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen had canceled the entry visa of the United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Palestine, Lynn Hastings.

On Sunday evening, the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation said that the Israeli occupation army approved an operational plan to launch a ground operation in Rafah, which is the last refuge for the displaced in the stricken sector.

At dawn on Monday, the Israeli army launched a series of violent raids on various areas of the city, leading to the death and injury of dozens of Palestinians, including children and women, in clear disregard for international warnings about the consequences of invading the city, which is crowded with displaced people.
