    Jordan condemns 'shameful aggression' of Israeli raid on Gaza

    Jordan has condemned what it called Israel's "shameful aggression" on a Gaza Strip refugee camp yesterday, where 10 Palestinians were killed and 19 more wounded.

    "This shameful aggression constitutes a horrible new crime by the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people," Jordanian Information Minister Mohamed Adwan was quoted by the official Petra news agency as saying.

    "It equally constitutes proof of Israel's refusal to bend to the international will... this camp, in particular, being under the protection of the United Nations," he said.

    Two of the people killed in an early morning raid on the densely populated Al-Bureij camp were employees of UNWRA, the UN Palestinian relief agency that runs the camp.

    One of them was a member of the radical Islamic group Hamas.

    Mr Adwan reiterated Jordan's condemnation of any violence against civilians.

    He says it "is time to withdraw from the cycle of violence and give a chance to current diplomatic efforts, notably those of the quartet", in a a reference to the United States, Russia, United Nations and European Union, who have put forward a "roadmap" for Middle East peace that envisions creation of a Palestinian state by 2005.
