Amman accuses Israel of shelling near Jordanian field hospital in Gaza

Jordan condemns alleged Israeli shelling in the vicinity of the Jordanian field hospital in Gaza, which has reportedly led to the injury of seven hospital staff who were treating wounded Palestinians.

The IDF did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it was carrying out airstrikes in the area.

In a statement, Amman’s Foreign Ministry lambasts the act as “a clear violation of international law,” and holds Israel “fully responsible for endangering the lives of Jordanian medical teams,” threatening to take legal and political steps after it receives the results of an investigation launched by the Jordanian army.

Jordan also urges Israel to refrain from attacking hospitals. The IDF has provided significant evidence that some of Hamas’s main command centers and weapons depots are located under Gaza’s medical facilities.

The UAE also issues a statement in which it “strongly condemns” the alleged Israeli bombing near the Jordanian field hospital.
