US condemns Israeli settler attack on Jordanian aid convoy

The US condemned on Tuesday an attack by Israeli settlers on a Jordanian aid convoy travelling to Erez crossing in northern Gaza.

“The Secretary strongly condemned the recent violent attacks on humanitarian aid convoys from Jordan to Gaza by extremists seeking to prevent aid from reaching Palestinian civilians in need,” according to a readout of a call between US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi.

The attack marked the second assault on a Jordanian convoy destined for Gaza in less then a week. Trunks with Jordanian aid have left the Hashemite Kingdom traveling across the occupied West Bank and Israel en route to Gaza.
