Jordan dispatches military plane to transport injured national from Rafah

AMMAN, May 14 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Tuesday dispatched a plane from the Royal Jordanian Air Force to transport an injured Jordanian from Rafah to the kingdom for treatment, the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Yara Dababneh, a staffer at the United Nations Department of Safety and Security (DSS) in Gaza, was injured in an Israeli attack on a UN vehicle in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, on Monday, according to a statement by the ministry.

The ministry said it has been coordinating with the DSS regarding the condition of the Jordanian citizen to ensure her transfer to Jordan's Al Hussein Medical City.

On Monday, Jordan condemned the attack on a UN vehicle in Rafah that resulted in the death of one staff member and the injury of another, due to Israel's expansion of its military operations in Rafah.

The Israeli military said an initial inquiry found "that the vehicle was hit in an area declared an active combat zone" and that its forces "had not been made aware of the route of the vehicle." It said the incident was still under review.
