AMMAN — Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour on Thursday attended a ceremony in Baqaa Refugee Camp to celebrate the anniversary of the Karamah Battle. During the event, organised by refugee camps in Jordan, Ensour stressed the Kingdom’s support to the Palestinian issue and its people’s legitimate rights guaranteed by international laws, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

On March 21, 1968, Jordanian soldiers repelled an Israeli attack on the small town of Karamah in the Jordan Valley, whose name means “dignity”. Several Jordanian soldiers lost their lives in the battle, while the Israeli raid was repelled with heavy losses as the Jordanian army launched an artillery barrage against Israeli tanks.
