Jordan Recalls Ambassador to Israel over Gaza’s “Unprecedented Humanitarian Catastrophe”

HeadlineNov 02, 2023

Jordan has recalled its ambassador to Israel. In a statement, Jordan’s Foreign Ministry condemned the “ongoing Israeli war that is killing innocent people in Gaza and causing an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe.” Jordan’s move came ahead of Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s departure for the Middle East this weekend. Blinken will meet in Tel Aviv with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials on Friday before heading to Jordan, where the State Department says he will discuss ways to “reduce regional tensions.”
