CAIRO – 3 November 2023:  The foreign minister of Egypt, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, alongside the Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, will hold a coordination meeting in Amman on Saturday aiming at stopping the Israeli war on Gaza and the humanitarian catastrophe it is causing, Spokesman for the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Sufian Al-Qudah announced Friday.

Following the coordination meeting, the foreign ministers will meet US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to affirm the Arab position calling for an immediate ceasefire and the immediate and urgent delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, he added.

Israel targeted on Friday an ambulance in front of Al-Shifa Medical Complex, which was transporting wounded individuals. The bombing led to the killing of at least 60 Palestinian according to Gaza Ministry of Health spokesperson, Ashraf Qudra.

The Israeli strikes also targeted the vicinity of Al-Quds and the Indonesian hospitals in Gaza. All three bombings resulted in hundreds of casualties and wounded, which is considered to be ‘war crime’ according to the international human rights conventions.

Both of Al-Quds and the Indonesian hospitals suffered a lot of destruction as a result of the bombing.

The medical sector in Gaza have been reported more than once to be almost ‘collapsed’ by UN officials.

The International Committee of the Red Cross said in statement following the Israeli bombing that ambulances and medical facilities are supposed to be protected by the international law.

The statement added that the Red Cross teams are in Gaza to work to prevent the collapse of the health sector.

‘We wished we had shields to protect ambulance convoys’ the Red Cross stated.

The International Committee added that the health sector in Gaza is facing an ‘imminent catastrophe’ that did not occur before.

The number of martyrs in the Gaza Strip rose, Friday, to 9,227, including 3,670 children and nearly 23,000 wounded, as a result of the continuous Israeli bombing of the Strip since October 7.

During the past period, Israel have committed several war crimes, breaching all international law conventions. And amid these massacres committed against civilians, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied reaching any humanitarian true or even allowing fuel to cross for the hospitals.
