Today we stand with the family of the brave Muath and with our people and our armed forces as we deal with this tragedy, which is a tragedy for all Jordanian men and women.

At this difficult time, it is the duty of all citizens to unify their ranks and show the true character of the Jordanian people when they face hardships and plights, which will only strengthen us and reinforce our unity”, he added. It will only strengthen us: King Abdullah.
