Jordan’s Foreign Ministry has issued a condemnation of the Israeli military’s deadly counter-terror raid in the Palestinian city of Jenin earlier today.

The ministry’s statement blasts the “ongoing Israeli incursions into occupied Palestinian cities and the continuous attacks on them.”

It warns that such raids will lead to a “further deterioration and extend the cycle of violence.”

Jordan calls on Israel to cease its “unlawful and illegal campaign,” which undermines prospects for a two-state solution.
