A Jordanian aid convoy heading to Gaza was involved in an accident that led to the death of two soldiers and the injury of others, on the road leading to the Dead Sea at the Adassiya landing area.

The Jordanian army announced in a statement that three military trucks deviated from their lane, resulting in the death of a sergeant and a soldier, and two soldiers were moderately injured.

The Jordanian army confirmed its continued efforts to send humanitarian aid to the residents of Gaza, in light of the successive crises taking place in the region.

At the international level, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres spoke about the deteriorating situation in Gaza, noting the complete chaos and severe lack of security that led to trucks loaded with aid being looted.

He added that Israeli measures hindered the use of the Palestinian Civil Police to secure this aid, which negatively affected the distribution of relief.

For his part, United Nations spokesman, Farhan Haq, pointed out that the conflict prevents aid from reaching critical places, stressing the need for Israel, as an occupying power, to facilitate the safe access of humanitarian aid to ensure it reaches those in need.

It is noteworthy that King Abdullah revealed last June in his speech during the Emergency Humanitarian Response Conference hosted by Jordan: About the value of the aid provided, amounting to approximately $75 million to Gaza, and $25 million to the West Bank.
