Jordan opposes external administration of Gaza strip in future

1 min read

Jordan opposes any idea of external governance of the Gaza Strip in the future, Jordanian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said.

Earlier, White House Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby said Gaza’s future should be determined by the Palestinians themselves, but the structure of administering the region after the end of the current conflict with Israel has not been determined yet.

“Jordan rejects any talk of post-war Gaza administration through Arab or non-Arab forces,” Safadi said as quoted by Petra news agency.

He said a political solution and a comprehensive and just peace are needed, ensuring the realization of the Palestinians’ rights and the creation of their independent state.

On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip and breached the border, killing and abducting people in neighboring Israeli communities.

Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food, and fuel. On October 27, Israel launched a large-scale ground incursion inside the Gaza Strip with the declared goal of eliminating Hamas fighters and rescuing the hostages.

The escalation of the conflict has resulted in the deaths of around 1,400 people in Israel and over 10,000 in the Gaza Strip.
