Jordanian King Warns Against Forced Migration Of Palestinian To Jordan And Egypt

King Abdallah II of Jordan warned Tuesday that the displacement of Palestinians to Jordan and Egypt is a "red line", and said there would be no refugees in Jordan and no Refugees in Egypt.

Speaking alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at a news conference in Berlin, the king warned against any forced migration.

"That is a red line because I think that is a plan by certain of the usual suspects to try and create de facto issues on the ground. No refugees in Jordan, no refugees in Egypt. This is a situation of humanitarian dimension that has to be dealt inside of Gaza and the West Bank and not to try and push the Palestinian challenge in their future onto the people's shoulders", King Abdullah II said.

He expressed deep concern over the heavy toll of Palestinian and Israeli lives lost, and at the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, which he described as "unacceptable", both in terms of legal and humanitarian concerns.

"This year is the bloodiest for Palestinians and Israelis in recent memory, and it will get worse unless we stop this war and the humanitarian catastrophe it is causing," the King said.

US President Joe Biden will meet with the king in Jordan later this week during his trip to the Middle Wast, Biden is scheduled to arrive in Israel on Wednesday.
