France strongly condemns the shelling that struck the Jordanian field hospital in Khan Younis, Gaza, yesterday, leaving several people injured. We condemn the targeting of civilian infrastructure, and medical infrastructure in particular, which are protected by international humanitarian law. France offers its heartfelt solidarity to Jordan and calls for a full investigation into this matter.
France commends Jordan on its efforts to help Gaza’s civilian population. France is directly supporting the Jordanian field hospital in Gaza by both funding and providing medication and medical supplies. Moreover, we continue to work in close cooperation with Jordan on humanitarian efforts in Gaza, as proven by the January 4th joint airdrop of seven tons of humanitarian aid and the deployment of a Jordanian medical team to Egypt using the Dixmude helicopter carrier.
