Jordan’s King Abdullah has warned against the “catastrophic repercussions” of Israel’s ongoing genocidal war on the Gaza Strip, calling on the United States to push for an immediate ceasefire in the besieged territory.

King Abdullah made the remarks during a meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday while emphasizing the urgent need to address the tragic humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

He also reiterated the important role Washington plays in bringing pressure for an immediate truce in Gaza, protecting civilians, and ensuring the efficient delivery of medical and humanitarian aid.

King Abdullah further denounced as a “clear violation of international law” the forced displacement of Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied West Bank, underscoring the need to enable Palestinians to return to their homes.
