A spokesman for the Jordanian Foreign Ministry said they were monitoring the condition of the civilian and his wounded son and were working to transfer them to a Jordanian field hospital for treatment until he was transferred to the kingdom.
Spokesperson Sufian al-Qadaa said, "The Jordanian government places absolute responsibility on the Israeli occupation forces for the well-being of this family and all Jordanian citizens who have not been able to leave Gaza."

Since the beginning of the war, relations between Israel and Jordan have been strained. The country's parliament called for a discussion of the peace agreements between the two countries, and King Abdullah and his wife Rania strongly condemned the IDF attacks. At the same time, Jordan coordinated with the Israeli security establishment to drop medical equipment at the Jordanian hospital in the northern Gaza Strip.
