Jordan’s foreign minister has said he does not understand how Israel’s goal of obliterating the Palestinian militant group Hamas could be achieved, Reuters reports.

Ayman Safadi said on Saturday:

Israel says it wants to wipe out Hamas. There’s a lot of military people here, I just don’t understand how this objective can be realised.

In addition to it being a war crime, it would be a direct threat to our national security. We’ll do whatever it takes to stop it.

This war is not taking us anywhere but towards more conflict, more suffering and the threat of expanding into regional wars.
