warned of consequences of what it termed Israeli "escalation" against
the Gaza Strip and called for halting Israeli airstrikes on the
"Violence will only lead to more tensions and suffering," the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, according to the kingdom's official news agency Petra.
"It is necessary to halt all condemned and rejected military operations against the [Gaza] Strip, whose people are suffering from an unacceptable humanitarian and life crisis due to Israel's unfair siege," the ministry added.
