Amman, Mexican Ambassador to Jordan Roberto Rodriguez-Hernandez Wednesday said that today’s stabbing attack on a number of people that included three Mexicans and a Swiss, and Jordanians in the northern governorate of Jerash, is a “condemned individual attack.”

He praised the Jordanian authorities for their support and cooperation, pointing out that he has just returned from Jerash Hospital where he witnessed firsthand the level of medical care offered to the injured.

“Fortunately, their condition is stable and some of them were taken to the Medical City Hospital in Amman for treatment,” he told “Petra”.

On detail of the incident, he said that he received a phone call from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates informing him of the incident, after which he rushed to the hospital, expressing his appreciation for the continued follow-up from the Jordanian officials.

He stressed that the Jordanian-Mexican relations are strong and distinguished and will not be affected.
