"We pray to Almighty God to bless the victims of this tragic accident with His mercy, grant their families patience and solace, and grant a speedy recovery to the injured," the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Ahmed Abu-Zeid wrote on X.

On Sunday, two Jordanian officers were killed and two others injured in an accident when three military trucks veered off their path on the Dead Sea/Adaseh road, according to Jordan's news agency.

More than eight months of the Israeli war on Gaza has led to dire humanitarian conditions in the strip and repeated UN warnings of famine with outside aid severely restricted.

Desperation among Gaza's 2.4 million population has increased as fighting rages, sparking warnings from aid agencies that they are unable to deliver aid.
