Jordanian King Abdullah II warned that Israel’s continuation of its “ugly war” with Hamas in the Gaza Strip may lead to “an explosion in the situation in the entire region,” during his meeting with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Sunday, according to “Russia Today” news network.

A statement from the Royal Court quoted the Jordanian King as saying, “Israel’s continuation of its hideous war on Gaza and its illegal violations in the West Bank and Jerusalem will lead to an explosion in the situation in the entire region.”

He stressed “the need to act immediately to establish a ceasefire in Gaza, protect civilians, and ensure the uninterrupted delivery of humanitarian aid there.”

He warned of “the worsening humanitarian situation in the Strip,” calling on “the international community to stop this humanitarian catastrophe out of respect for international law and the Charter of the United Nations.”

On the other hand, the Jordanian statement quoted von der Leyen as emphasizing ‘the necessit
y of achieving peace on the basis of the two-state solution,’ stressing the rejection of ‘any attempts to displace the Palestinians,’ and ‘the importance of preserving the historical and legal status in Jerusalem.’

According to the statement, talks during the meeting emphasized the need “to condemn violence by settlers in the West Bank.”
