AMMAN: Jordan, one of just two Arab countries to have signed a peace treaty with Israel, Wednesday demanded an immediate halt to deadly Israeli air raids against the Gaza Strip.

Government spokesman Mohammad Momani said that the raids that killed more than 20 Palestinians in purported response to rocket fire that has killed no one in Israel were "barbaric."

Jordan "condemns the military aggression that Israel has launched in the Gaza Strip" and calls for "its immediate halt," Momani said.

He said the "barbaric aggression" had "negative repercussions on the Gaza Strip and the whole region."
