The convoy had 92 trucks loaded with food, tents, and first aid kits. A total of 1,456 land trucks and 53 planes have delivered aid to Gaza through the Land rout.

Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi described this move as an “important and essential step towards Palestinian statehood.” During a press conference with Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, Safadi highlighted that this recognition is a significant stride towards achieving a two-state solution, envisioning an independent, sovereign Palestinian state based on the July 1967 borders.

Earlier, Ireland’s Prime Minister Simon Harris announced his country’s recognition of Palestine, with Spain and Norway set to follow on May 28.

Harris underscored the political and symbolic significance of this recognition. Norway’s Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store confirmed his country’s decision despite warnings from Israel, which has recalled its envoys to Norway and Ireland for consultations. Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez indicated that Spain would formalize its recognition of the Palestinian state, criticizing Israeli policies in Gaza.

These coordinated humanitarian and diplomatic efforts reflect Jordan’s unwavering commitment to supporting Gaza and advocating for Palestinian statehood amidst the ongoing conflict.
