She asserted that this amounted to "aiding and abetting" the ongoing violence in the region. Queen Rania also emphasized the apparent double standards exhibited by Western nations, drawing attention to the disparity in global responses to different aspects of the ongoing conflict.
In the interview with CNN, Queen Rania expressed deep disappointment in the world's reaction to the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and the immense human suffering it has engendered. She highlighted the swift and unequivocal support shown to Israel when it faced an attack on October 7, in stark contrast to the more subdued response to the current hostilities. This stark contrast in reactions has drawn widespread criticism and scrutiny, fueling public discourse on the role of Western powers in the region.
As Israel continues its bombing campaign, the toll on the people of the Gaza Strip has been staggering, with 1000s of casualties reported due to airstrikes. The Israeli military has come under fire from the international community for its recent targets which include the Al Ahli hospital, and the Church of Saint Porphyrius in recent weeks.
