In a candid and ominous statement, Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi has asserted that Israel “cannot win” in the long term, cautioning that the deep-rooted animosity sparked by the recent violence in Gaza is destined to haunt the Middle East for generations.
Safadi’s remarks come in the wake of renewed clashes and heightened tensions in the Gaza Strip.
Speaking at a press conference in Amman, Foreign Minister Safadi declared, “The recent events in Gaza have not only resulted in immediate loss of life and suffering, but they have sown seeds of hatred and resentment that will persist for generations. Israel must recognize that it cannot achieve lasting peace through force and military actions.”
The comments reflect Jordan’s deep concern over the escalation of violence and its potential ramifications for regional stability. Jordan has historically played a key role in diplomatic efforts to address the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has consistently advocated for a two-state solution.
The Jordanian Foreign Minister’s stark warning adds to the international chorus urging restraint and a return to dialogue as the most viable path toward a lasting solution.
The repercussions of the recent violence in Gaza continue to reverberate, raising concerns about the potential for broader regional destabilization and the exacerbation of existing tensions.
