Jordanian foreign minister says Israel is putting Middle East at risk of regional war

Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi says Israel is dragging the Middle East into “the furnace of a regional war” that threatens the security and stability of the region.

Safadi calls for the international community to “bear its responsibility and stop the Israeli aggression and arrogance” amid the war in Gaza, and says that if it does not, “it allows the Israeli Prime Minister and the ministers of extremism, hatred and racism in his government” to pull the region into an all-out war.

Safadi’s comments come after the US and UK struck Houthi targets in Yemen overnight in response to weeks of attacks launched by the Iran-backed group at vessels transiting in the Red Sea.
