Jordan says Rafah strikes jeopardizing truce deal

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is jeopardizing a truce agreement by launching strikes in Rafah.

“Tremendous effort has been made to produce an exchange deal that’ll release hostages & realize a ceasefire. Hamas has put out an offer. If Netanyahu genuinely wants a deal, he will negotiate the offer in earnest. Instead, he is jeopardizing the deal by bombing Rafah,” Safadi says on social media platform X.

Israeli leaders said Hamas’s offer fell short of Jerusalem’s demands, and that the army would push ahead with a planned offensive on the southern Gaza city.
