The Kingdom of Jordan has recalled its ambassador from the State of Israel in response to the ongoing IDF ground operation in Gaza, aimed at eliminating the barbaric Hamas terrorist organization in the enclave.

In addition, Jordan has informed the Jewish State that Amman will not allow Israel’s ambassador to return to the kingdom until the conclusion of the war.


“We informed Israel that its ambassador to Jordan, who had already left earlier, will not return to Jordan until the war in Gaza ends,” Jordan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Jordan’s King Abdullah II called for an immediate end to Israel’s operation in Gaza during his remarks at the “Cairo Summit for Peace” held October 23, calling Israel’s bombing of Hamas terrorist positions in the enclave “a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law” and “a war crime.”
