If I'm not mistaken the first article spoke of the King only and the article announcing their return mentioned them both by name.

Either the latter was mistaken or she joined him afterwards.

An excellent move by the Jordanians. It's good to see something practical that ultimately will benefit ordinary Palestinians being done.

Blood donation is "nothing"?

I only hope you never find yourself in a situation needing a transplant as I doubt you would refuse to accept a donation.

it's wonderful thing giving blood
personnaly i do it each year at my work place
but, KAbdellah and QRania are not ordinary people, yes it's nice giving blood, yes they can do it with photographs and cameras
But excuse me, they are King and Queen af arabian Country , QRania is originaly from Palestine...they can do more , they can do better , thay can act more eficiently for palestine instead of giving images like any people ...

I agree ikram,and a lot about Demagogy,it's nice gesture but when you know that this blood donation will make it to the poeple who need it,we all know very much that Gaza is under Full Israeli siege nothing come in/nothing come out so taking some pics and lunching whole campaign for that when you know very well people will not benefit from it is just self promoting nothing else.

The Jordanian government has already sent 16 trucks of aid to Gaza, as well as a field hospital, so the supplies are getting through.

Morover, the whole point of donating blood to publicly is to encourage Jordanian citizens to go out and donate. Even during times of stability blood donation tends to be low, during crises like war (in this case) or natural disaster it's even worse.

But hey, maybe they should sit around and do nothing like other Arab royals?

Israel has allowed a trickle of aid through its cargo crossings with Gaza despite the military campaign, agreeing to allow 100 trucks in on Tuesday, defense officials said. Jordan, the Red Cross and the World Health Organization were also preparing to send medical supplies.

Nearly 200 trucks of humanitarian aid, along with new trucks and ambulances, have passed into Gaza the past three days. One hundred more trucks of aid are expected to enter Gaza Wednesday.

Jordan will start a land bridge to deliver aid to Gaza Strip on daily basis, daily The Jordan Times reported on Wednesday.

The daily delivery will include 10 trucks loaded with medical equipment and donations by the Jordanian people, the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO) spokesperson Mohammad Kilani was quoted as saying.
"No sooner had the door been opened for donations for the besieged Palestinians in Gaza than in-kind and cash donations poured in from citizens, public and private institutions and civil society institutions," Kilani said. On Monday, Jordan sent to Gaza its first convoy of 16 trucks carrying medical and food packages in addition to some 1,000 blood units donated by Jordanians.
